Lionel Richie to perform at the Liberty Stadium
1st December 2015
International superstar Lionel Richie will be performing in Swansea for the first time on June 18 with a live concert at the Liberty Stadium.
Performing 'All The Hits' from his extensive and much loved repertoire spanning decades from the Commodores to the present day, Lionel's shows are world renowned for their party atmosphere featuring classics such as 'Hello', 'Easy', 'Dancing on the Ceiling', 'Say You Say Me' and 'All Night Long'.
The UK fell back in love with Lionel last year following a tour that received glittering reviews and culminated in a phenomenal Glastonbury performance.
After drawing the biggest crowd of the weekend with over 100,000 people flocking to the Pyramid Stage, Lionel's album 'The Definitive Collection' reached No 1 on the UK album charts for the first time in 23 years.
Lionel went on to receive British GQ's Icon Award, adding to a celebrated career which includes four GRAMMYs, a Golden Globe and even an Oscar.
Having sold over 100 million albums worldwide, Lionel shows no signs of slowing down.
Lionel said: "It will be the first time I've been to Swansea and I can't wait.
"I had such a great time in the UK this year and I can't wait to visit new places and meet new people.
"Performing at Glastonbury for the first time was such a thrill for me and given me an appetite to do new things in the UK. I know these shows are going to be very special.''
Tickets will go on sale from Friday. More details to follow.
