The highly anticipated Joburg-leg of the tour, presented by 94.7 Highveld Stereo, 94.5 Kfm and East Coast Radio, will be on Thursday, 27th and Friday, 28th of November at the Coca Cola Dome in Northgate.

“Simplicity,” Lionel Richie explains, “is the key to what I do.” These are surprising, even shocking, words from an artist whose achievements, creatively and commercially… have been anything but simple. Among the many awards that grace his shelves, the collection includes five Grammy Awards, an Oscar, a Golden Globe, and not to mention piles of American Music and People’s Choice awards. “I want to find the simplest phrase that everybody says, no matter what language you speak.”

Richie’s perspective is a product of nearly four decades of making music, since he co-founded the Commodores in 1967 at Tuskegee Institute in Alabama. Signed in 1971 to Motown, The Commodores became one of America’s most popular bands by the mid-’70s.

Lionel Richie is incredibly excited about this long overdue visit to South Africa and reflected that his latest studio album, “Coming Home”, is a metaphor for this much anticipated tour. “Africa holds a special place for me and I am anxious to come home and give something back to all the fans that have supported me and my music over the years”.

The legendary Lionel Richie… Live in South Africa, is guaranteed to have fans dancing on the ceiling. This is the one performance that you don’t want to miss!
