Audiences are never disappointed with Richie’s exuberant live shows which deliver a mix material from a 30 plus year career from the memorable early days of the Commodores’, to the sweet serenades of his Eighties piano ballads and more recent up tempo pop material from the Noughties.
Richie’s career has seen him rack up sales of more than 100 million albums, 22 top 10’s, five Grammys, an Oscar for Best Original Score, a Golden Globe and a host of other awards from virtually every major entertainment organisation.
He has shaped popular culture as his music has served as the soundtrack of several generations around the world. His music has remained at the forefront of his fan’s milestone moments – first kiss, first wedding dance, first break up, first child. It’s impossible to separate those memories and his music because they are inextricably intertwined.
The tour announcement coincides with the release of ‘Tuskegee’ his much anticipated album which is released in Ireland today (12th March in the UK).
Richie has re-recorded 14 of his international hits performed as duets such as Endless Love, Easy and Angel. He is joined by renowned artists such as Shania Twain, Kenny Rogers and Willie Nelson as well as his pick of today’s contemporary scene in Little Big Town and Pixie Lott.
