“With more than 125 million albums sold worldwide, as well as an Oscar, a Golden Globe, four Grammy Awards, and a 2017 Kennedy Center Honor, Richie’s high-wattage career makes this a concert event not to be missed,” reads the Wynn Las Vegas official website. Believe it or not, this hardly scratches the surface of Lionel Richie’s legendary career. While Gen Z may know him as Nicole and Sofia Richie’s father, he’s been one of the world’s most talented R&B-soul singers for half a century. Songs like “We Are the World,” “All Night Long,” “Easy,” “Hello,” and dozens more are his legacy, and he’s sharing them all onstage in Las Vegas.

So much so that the R&B-soul singer extended his performances through the fall due to overwhelming demand! The setlist includes old and new favorites, taking you on a journey through his transformative life in the industry. Some may know him as half of the 1981 single, “Endless Love,” a song recorded with Diana Ross that remains one of the most influential tracks of all time. It’s been covered by everybody from Luther Vandross and Mariah Carey to Shania Twain!
Then there’s the Lionel Richie tribute at the Grammy Awards in 2019, with Demi Lovato and John Legend honoring him with a cover of “Hello.” Essentially, Richie has earned respect from artists of every decade since the 1960s, and seeing him perform is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for all involved.
