Richie, who has been selling out dates across Australia and Asia on the “All the Hits” tour, will extend the trek to include 35 North American concerts kicking off in May in Vancouver, promoter Live Nation announced today. The concert will feature songs spanning Richie’s career, from his rise with the 1970s funk and soul group The Commodores, to his huge solo success in the 1980s with No. 1 hits such as “Endless Love,” “All Night Long (All Night)” and “Say You, Say Me,” through his more recent work. Richie’s latest album, “Tuskegee,” hit the No.1 spot on the Billboard 200 after its 2012 release and sold more than one million copies in the United States. Overall, Richie has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide.
“I’m so lucky to have the collection of songs that I can play for my fans, it becomes a giant sing-along most nights,” Richie said in a news release. “People always ask me ‘what are you going to sing tonight Lionel?’ and I always laugh and reply, ‘what are you going to sing tonight?’”
Green has served as a judge for four seasons on NBC’s reality competition series “The Voice.” He was a member of hip-hop group Goodie Mob before scoring a smash hit with the track “Crazy” as part of singer-producer duo Gnarls Barkley. His most recent solo studio album, “The Lady Killer,” was released in 2010.
