Lionel Richie to thrill fans in exclusive live show at The Star Event Centre

The Star Sydney is thrilled to announce multi-platinum-selling artist and multiple Grammy Award®-winner Lionel Richie will perform an exclusive up close and personal live show as part of his national ‘All The Hits Tour’ on Tuesday, 3 October at The Star Event Centre.

An international music icon, Richie will perform his mega-hits “Endless Love,” “Lady,” “Truly,” “All Night Long (All Night),” “Penny Lover,” “Stuck On You,” “Hello,” “Say You, Say Me,” “Dancing on the Ceiling,” and “We Are The World,” as part of his six-city Australian tour.

With more than 100 million albums sold worldwide, an Oscar, Golden Globe, and four Grammy awards under his belt, plus the distinction of MusiCares person of the year in 2016, Richie is a true music legend who has become part of the fabric of pop music.

His song catalogue also includes his early work with The Commodores, where he developed a ground-breaking style that defied genre categories, penning smashes such as “Three Times A Lady,” “Still,” and “Easy.”

“I can’t wait to bring my All the Hits tour to Australia! I’ll be performing an up-close-and-personal show at The Star Event Centre just for my Sydney fans this October. We’re going to have a great time together,” said Richie.
