Lionel Richie Returns to the AECC Arena!

Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) are delighted to announce that Lionel Richie will be returning to the AECC Arena as part of his ‘Tuskegee Tour’ on Saturday 29th September 2012.

The Tuskegee Tour will be Lionel’s first European tour since 2009, and will take him to Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark,   Finland, France, Holland, Hungary, Ireland,  Luxembourg, Monaco, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and, of course, the UK.

Audiences are never disappointed with Lionel Richie’s exuberant live shows which deliver a mix material from a 30 plus year career from the memorable early days of the Commodores’, to the sweet serenades of his Eighties piano ballads and more recent up tempo pop material from the Noughties.

Lionel Richie’s career has seen him rack up sales of more than 100 million albums, 22 Top 10’s, five Grammys, an Oscar for Best Original Score, a Golden Globe and a host of other awards from virtually every major entertainment organisation.  He has shaped popular culture as his music has served as the soundtrack of several generations around the world. His music has remained at the forefront of his fan’s milestone moments – from a first kiss, to a first wedding dance, a first break up and a first child. It’s impossible to separate those memories and his music because they are inextricably intertwined.

The tour announcement coincides with the release of ‘Tuskegee’, his much
anticipated album on 12 March 2012.

Richie has re-recorded 14 of his international hits performed as duets, such as
Endless Love, Easy and Angel. He is joined on the album by renowned artists Shania Twain, Kenny Rogers and Willie Nelson as well as his pick of today’s contemporary scene in Little Big Town and Pixie Lott.

Brian Horsburgh, AECC’s Managing Director says: “This is the third time Lionel Richie
has visited the AECC Arena, and we look forward to welcoming him back to the North-East.  There are many fans who will be delighted to have the opportunity to once again see him perform live!”
