Hello, is it Lionel Richie you’re looking for? Look no further than Las Vegas when the four-time Grammy Award winner and music icon starts his Las Vegas headlining residency show, “Lionel Richie -- All the Hits,” at the Axis at the Planet Hollywood Resort on Wednesday, April 27, 2016.

The multi-platinum-album singer plans to bring his catalog of hits, including “All Night Long,” “Stuck on You,” “Say You, Say Me,” “Dancing on the Ceiling” and, of course, “Hello.”

Richie’s music career started in 1968 with the Commodores, penning hits including “Three Times A Lady,” “Still” and “Easy.” After writing songs such “Endless Love” for his duet with Diana Ross, and “Lady” for country singer Kenny Rogers, Richie broke out as a solo artist in 1982 with his hit, “Truly.” Over the course of his long career, he’s sold more than 100 million albums.


He teamed up with pop singer Michael Jackson to write “We Are The World,” for USA for Africa.

His career has seen him collaborate with such diverse acts as Lenny Kravitz, Ne-Yo, The-Dream and Akon, as well as some of country music’s biggest names for his 2012 album “Tuskegee.”
