Say hello to your fantasy line-up, circa 1990 something.
If you wanted to dance all night long, there’s one sweet day coming up for you in the spring.
Multi-platinum-selling artists, multiple Grammy Award-winners and music icons, Lionel Richie returns to Vancouver for a special show with guest Mariah Carey on September 3 at Rogers Arena.
The duo, who are touring together for the first time ever, embark on a 35-show date on their “All The Hits Tour” beginning in March. The North American tour is mostly U.S based, with stops in Toronto and Vancouver.
Lionel Richie began his solo career in the early 1980s and has released over 40 singles, including “Endless Love,” “Lady,” “Truly,” and “All Night Long (All Night).” He’s sold over 100 million albums world wide, and has an Oscar, a Golden Globe, four Grammy awards all to his name.
Besides making Christmas official each year, Mariah Carey is known as a pop music icon. She has sold over 220 million records, and has been recognized with multiple Grammy Awards, 21 American Music Awards, Billboard’s “Artist of the Decade” Award, the World Music Award for “World’s Best Selling Female Artist Of The Millennium,” and BMI’s “Icon Award” for her outstanding achievements in songwriting. Her hits, which really need no introduction, include “Fantasy”, “Always Be My Baby”, “Hero”, and “Touch My Body.”
