Multi-platinum-selling artist, multiple Grammy Award winner and music icon, Lionel Richie, will perform at Central Coast Stadium on October 14, as part of his Australian tour.
CEO of Teg Dainty, Mr Paul Dainty, said Richie was one of music’s greatest icons and that he was pleased to be bringing him to Australia for his 2017 tour supported by CHIC featuring Nile Rodgers.
“International superstar, Lionel Richie, has a discography of albums and singles that are second to none,” Mr Dainty said.
“His music is part of the fabric of pop music; in fact, Lionel Richie is one of only two songwriters in history to achieve the honour of having #1 records for nine consecutive years.
“With over 100 million albums sold worldwide, an Oscar, a Golden Globe, four Grammy awards and the distinction of MusiCares person of the year in 2016, the Tuskegee, Alabama, native is a true music icon.”
With his most recent All the Hits, All Night Long Tour, Richie sold out arenas worldwide with a set list of his brightest and best anthems.
