Speaking about bringing his tour to Europe Lionel said:

“I can’t wait to get back to the UK.  The audiences are always so great and I always have an incredible time when I’m in the United Kingdom. The show feels like a great big sing-along most nights so I’m looking forward to singing along with the people of the UK again!”

Lionel’s shows feature songs from one of the most loved repertoires in music spanning his entire career from the Commodores through to the present day.  The tour has received incredible reactions from fans all over the world.  Lionel’s performances have become renowned for being much more than just a concert – reviewers around the world have commented on the unique party atmosphere he creates as he unites the audience with songs like “Dancing On The Ceiling”, “Say You, Say Me”, “Hello”,  “Three Times A Lady”, “Easy” and “All Night Long”.  The show really does deliver on its promise of ALL THE HITS ALL NIGHT LONG.
