Lionel Richie can’t wait to come back to the UK.
The ‘My Destiny’ singer was forced to postpone a number of dates this month due to illness, but is now back on track and looking forward to his rescheduled shows.
He said: ‘’Being back out on the road is amazing, the crowds have been fantastic and I am very excited about heading back to the UK soon.’’
Lionel has recently performed in Amsterdam in The Netherlands and Frankfurt, Germany, peppering his set with songs from his country album, ‘Tuskegee’, as well as classics such as ‘Easy’, ‘Stuck On You’, ‘Three Times A Lady’, ‘Say You Say Me’.
He also recently received a Country Music Awards (CMA) nomination for ‘Tuskegee’, and was pleasantly surprised to be recognised so highly for his first foray into the genre.
He said: ‘’I am thrilled to receive my first nomination from the CMA. I am so grateful to the country music community for embracing this project and making me feel so at home.’’
