Lionel Richie Returns to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace July 30-31
June 7, 2010 by VegasNews.com
World-renowned music icon Lionel Richie will bring his four decades of award winning hits to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on Friday, July 30 and Saturday, July 31.
One of the most distinctive and instantly recognizable voices in music, Richie is excited to introduce fans to songs from his new album Just Go which is a remarkable music marriage of his timeless style and a collection of contemporary material.
As co-founder of The Commodores in 1967, Lionel Richie experienced his first taste of success after the group signed to Motown Records in 1971, becoming one of the most popular U.S. funk bands with “Machine Gun” and “Brick House” before creating a slew of future slow jam Richie-penned classics with “Easy,” “Three Times a Lady” and “Sail On.” Richie began working outside the Commodores in 1980, working with such names as Kenny Rogers, Diana Ross, and other popular music acts of the 1980s.
In 1982, the release of his self-titled solo quadruple platinum Motown debut set Lionel on a record-breaking pathway to global superstardom: 1983’s ten-million-selling “Can’t Slow Down” — which won a Grammy for Album of the Year – was followed by 1986’s massively-successful “Dancing on the Ceiling.”
After a period of reflection and personal growth, Lionel returned in 1992 with Back To Front, followed by 1996’s Louder Than Words, 1998’s Time, 2001’s Renaissance, 2003’s Encore, the aptly-titled The Definitive Collection, a worldwide multi-million-selling retrospective, 2004’s Just For You, and 2006’s Coming Home.
Just Go, Richie’s most recent project, is an album with a decided musical twist and has Lionel working with today’s hottest hitmakers – Tricky Stewart & The Dream, Stargate, and Akon – to show that great talent is always timeless.
