Lionel Richie to tour his new album in the UK
Date Posted: 02/03/12
Lionel Richie is marking the release of his tenth studio album, Tuskegee, with his first UK tour in three years.
Scottish fans can book Glasgow hotels to see Richie on the first date of his tour on Thursday, September 27th at the SECC.
He then plays Aberdeen, Birmingham, London, Liverpool, Manchester, Cardiff and Newcastle before playing his final date in Sheffield on Saturday, November 17th.
The tour comes 25 years after Richie played his first concert on the British Isles as a solo artist.
Previous to this, he made his name as a member of the 70s soul band, The Commodores.
He has notched up 100 million album sales worldwide, five Grammys, an Oscar, a Golden Globe and 22 top ten hits.
Tuskegee marks a deviation from his soul routes as he tackles the genre of country to honour the rich musical heritage of the land that he was born in: Alabama.
