International superstar Lionel Richie will return to the UK in 2018, with a show at Holkham Hall on Sunday 24th 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 10am.
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.”
The Earl and Countess of Leicester commented, “We are delighted to be hosting Lionel Richie for a spectacular outdoor concert in the grounds of Holkham in June. It is set to be a memorable evening of entertainment. Our team will be working closely with the event promoters to ensure the concert is one of the highlights of the summer’.
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 ongoing 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.
The open-air concert will take place in the south park of Holkham with the Palladian-style hall proving a spectacular backdrop. Concertgoers will be able to enjoy their picnics or take advantage of the bespoke Hospitality Package for an evening of pure entertainment. A full traffic management plan will be in place with multiple access routes to the grounds on the night. Full information for concertgoers will also be available in due course on the Holkham website.
