Hello, is it Northampton you’re looking for?

That’s right, the man, the myth, the legend, Lionel Richie is coming to Northampton, among many other towns and cities throughout the UK this summer.

Claiming to have missed the UK, the former Commodores frontman will be returning to explore parts of the UK he’s never visited before. The summer tour will visit iconic venues across the country, in areas such as Northampton, Perth, London, Lincoln, Shrewsbury, Leigh, Carlisle, Scarborough, Chesterfield, Hove and North Norfolk.

Lionel said 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.”

Performing hits from his extensive catalogue that spans decades, Richie’s shows are world renowned for their party atmosphere. Fans will be able to enjoy timeless hits and sing along to classics such as “Lady”, “Truly”, “Dancing on the Ceiling”, “Say You Say Me”, “Hello” and “All Night Long”.
