Multi-platinum-selling artist, multiple Grammy Award® winner and music icon, Lionel Richie announced today he will tour New Zealand in October on the ALL THE HITS TOUR. Very special guests on the tour are CHIC featuring Nile Rodgers.

International superstar, Lionel Richie, has a discography of albums and singles that are second to none. His music is part of the fabric of pop music; in fact, Lionel Richie is one of only two songwriters in history to achieve the honour of having #1 records for nine consecutive years. With over 100 million albums sold worldwide, an Oscar, a Golden Globe, four Grammy awards and the distinction of MusiCares person of the year in 2016, the Tuskegee, Alabama native is a true music icon.

Lionel Richie is known for his mega-hits such as “Endless Love,” “Lady,” “Truly,” “All Night Long (All Night),” “Penny Lover,” “Stuck On You,” “Hello,” “Say You, Say Me,” “Dancing on the Ceiling,” and one of most important pop songs in history, “We Are The World,” written with Michael Jackson for USA for Africa. His song catalogue also includes his early work with The Commodores, where he developed a groundbreaking style that defied genre categories, penning smashes such as “Three Times A Lady,” “Still,” and “Easy.”

With his most recent All the Hits, All Night Long Tour, Lionel sold out arenas worldwide with a set-list of his brightest and best anthems. In recent years Lionel also headlined Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, and Glastonbury, drawing the festival’s biggest crowd ever with over 200,000 attendees.

Among music legends, Nile Rodgers is truly exceptional. He amplifies his legacy as a multi-Grammy-winning composer, producer, arranger, guitarist by constantly traversing new musical terrain and successfully expanding the boundaries of popular music. As the co-founder of CHIC, Rodgers pioneered a musical language that generated chart-topping pop hits like "Le Freak", and sparked the advent of hip-hop with "Good Times". He recently joined the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame's Class of 2017 and received the HOF's "Award for Musical Excellence".

Tickets for Lionel Richie and CHIC featuring Nile Rodgers go on sale on Monday June 19 at 10am.
