International superstar Lionel Richie will return to the UK in 2018, with a show at the home of Shrewsbury Town football team, Montgomery Meadow Waters on Wednesday 13th June. The date is part of a summer tour which will be visiting iconic venues across the country. Tickets go on sale on February 2nd from 10:00 AM.
Performing hits from his extensive and much loved repertoire spanning decades, all the way from the Commodores to the present day, Richie’s shows are world renowned for their party atmosphere. Fans will be able to enjoy timeless mega-hits and sing along to classics such as ‘Lady’, ‘Truly, ‘Dancing on the Ceiling’, ‘Say You Say Me’, ‘Hello’ and ‘All Night Long’.
Lionel says of his return: “I’ve been missing the UK and can’t wait to make my long awaited return and to see parts of the country I’ve never made it out to before. The fans are always incredible and they make the atmosphere at every show electric, so I look forward to singing along with them soon.”
These will be Lionel’s first UK shows since receiving glittering reviews for the‘All The Hits’ tour which included three nights at London’s O2. The dates followed a phenomenal Glastonbury performance which drew the biggest crowd of the weekend as over 200,000 people flocked to the Pyramid Stage. Lionel’s incredible success continued as his album ‘The Definitive Collection’ topped the charts and provided his first UK Number 1 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 as well as the prestigious Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef Award. In 2016 Lionel launched his on-going Las Vegas headline residency show, ‘Lionel Richie—All the Hits’, at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, where he takes his fans on a spectacular musical journey, performing a variety of his seminal hits. Having sold over 100 million albums worldwide he recently joined the judging panel on ABC’s American Idol.
Shrewsbury Town CEO Brian Caldwell is looking forward to seeing Lionel live at the Montgomery Waters Meadow: “After the success of previous concerts at the stadium with Elton John and of course last year with Rod Stewart, we look forward to another successful show with Lionel Richie. Lionel is one of the biggest selling artists of all time and I am sure he will be a popular with the people of Shropshire who are in for a magical night listening to all the hits. It is good to be working with Marshall Arts again who we worked with previously on the successful Elton John concert. Events like this help to put not only Shrewsbury Town on the map but also Shrewsbury and prove to be a major boost for the local economy.”
