Lionel Richie – All the Hits Tour

Relive the classic hits and have a blast from the past as you witness award-winning music icon Lionel Richie light up the stage in Christchurch and Auckland this October.

Alabama native Lionel is an international superstar that has a discography of albums and singles that are second to none. His music is part of the fabric of pop music; in fact, he is one of only two songwriters in history to achieve the honour of having no. 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, Lionel Richie is a true music icon.

Lionel is known for his mega-hits such as 'Endless Love', 'Lady', 'Truly', 'All Night Long (All Night)', 'Penny Lover', 'Stuck On You', 'Hello', 'Say You, Say Me', 'Dancing on the Ceiling' and one of most important pop songs in history, 'We Are The World' where he co-wrote with 'King of Pop', Michael Jackson for USA and Africa. His song catalogue also includes his early work with The Commodores, where he developed a groundbreaking style that defied genre categories, penning smashes such as 'Three Times A Lady', 'Still', and 'Easy'.

With his most recent All the Hits, All Night Long Tour, Lionel sold out arenas worldwide with a set-list of his brightest and best anthems. In recent years, Lionel also headlined Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, and Glastonbury, drawing the festival’s biggest crowd ever with over 200,000 attendees. In this year's NZ tour, Lionel will be joined by American funk band, Chic featuring Nile Rodgers.

Rodgers is truly exceptional, he amplifies his legacy as a multi-Grammy-winning composer, producer, arranger, guitarist by constantly traversing new musical terrain and successfully expanding the boundaries of popular music. His work in the Chic Organisation and his productions for artists like David Bowie and Madonna have sold over 300 million albums and 50 million singles worldwide, while his innovative, trendsetting collaborations with Daft Punk, Avicii, Disclosure and Sam Smith reflect the vanguard of contemporary music.

As the co-founder of Chic, Rodgers pioneered a musical language that generated chart-topping pop hits like 'Le Freak', and sparked the advent of hip-hop with 'Good Times'. He recently joined the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame's Class of 2017 and received the HOF's 'Award for Musical Excellence'. Fueling four decades of pop anthems with more than 200 production credits to his name, the scope of Rodgers' peerless influence is undeniable.

"Lionel Richie is one of music’s greatest icons with the greatest line up of hits, his live shows are renowned and critically acclaimed. I look forward to bringing Lionel to New Zealand for this two-city tour with the legendary band Chic featuring Nile Rodgers." - Paul Dainty, President and CEO of TEG-Dainty
