And all was well in the world again.

From a press release:

    Wow – 30 years back I was in Concert Promotions at the UofArizona when Lionel came through – used a nearly identical photo too. He lasts….

    Huh. I love Dancing on the Ceiling as much as the next 40-something, but I really expected that LR would be rocking that electric organ at state fairs at this point. Good on him!

      Playing at a casino in Prince George’s County is not really a step up.

      • wdc

        It’s the tickets starting at $200 that make it fancier than a 2-foot-high stage next to the 4H barn.

        • Ashy Oldlady

          I missed that detail. Now I’m shocked that they think more than a handful of people would actually pay $200 or more to see Lionel Richie play. At a casino.

            I would. I hear Lionel puts on a hell of a show.

        • dcd

          Yeah – three tickets for Lionel Ritchie or one ticket for Hamilton . . . easy choice. Now I just have to skip two more overpriced concerts of aging (or, actually, aged) rock/pop stars from the 80s (and 70s) and we can ALL go and see Hamilton!

        This venue is actually booking a decent caliber of artists. I heard Cher will do several shows here as well. I’m sure that show will not be a cheap one either.

      He puts out new albums all the time, it’s remarkable… I think the latest was a country covers record (not my bag of tea, but whatever).

  • OP Anon

    Still my favorite vinyl album photo in my collection….boring cover but when you open the record….SURPRISE!

  • Stuckonyou

    Saw him closeout ACL in 2013. Best show I’ve ever seen. He had the most buzz coming out of the first weekend.

    “He packed the star power of Stevie Wonder with the showmanship of Kanye West. It was the most exhilarating ACL headliner we’ve seen in years.”
