Iconic singer Lionel Richie will be coming to South Africa in March 2016 performing all the hits All Night Long.

Multi-platinum selling artist, four-time Grammy Award winner and music icon, Lionel Richie, announced the extension of his worldwide “All The Hits All Night Long” tour, traveling through South Africa this March for five shows in four cities.

As a member of the Commodores, Lionel developed a groundbreaking style that defied genre categories, penning smashes such as “Three Times A Lady,” “Still,” and “Easy.” After writing “Lady” for Kenny Rogers, and “Endless Love” with Diana Ross (which garnered an Academy Award and a Golden Globe nomination), Motown asked him to do a solo album.

The self-titled debut would cement him as a star in his own right and earn him his very first Grammy for the hit “Truly”. The diamond-certified “Album of the Year” winner Can’t Slow Down followed in 1983, giving the world classics such as “All Night Long (All Night),” “Penny Lover,” “Stuck On You,” and “Hello.”

All The Hits has sold out across the globe in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, United States and the Middle East. Richie will take his hit-filled show, featuring songs from the Commodores to four South African cities.

Lionel Richie will be performing in the following cities:

Sunday 13th March: Moses Mabhida Stadium, Durban

Wednesday 16th March: Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, Port Elizabeth

Friday 18th March: Cape Town Stadium (intimate setting)

Sunday 20th March: Ticketpro Dome, Johannesburg

Monday 21st March: Ticketpro Dome, Johannesburg

Ticket prices range from R175 to R1255.

Tickets go on sale Wednesday 21st October at 9am from Big Concerts and Computicket.
