Lionel Richie will launch his Las Vegas residency next year.
The 66-year-old singer has revealed he's heading to Planet Hollywood Casino & Resort in Nevada next April to takeover the AXIS stage for his 'Lionel Richie -- All the Hits' show.
Announcing his residency on Wednesday (16.09.15), Lionel said: ''I'm so excited to begin my residency at Planet Hollywood. I can't wait to share 'All the Hits, All Night Long' with all of my fans - it's a high energy show that is a perfect match for such a vibrant city!''
Lionel will play 20 shows spread across two sections, April and May, and September and October, when he'll perform his well-loved hits 'All Night Long', 'Hello', 'Stuck On You', 'Dancing On The Ceiling', and 'Say You, Say Me.'
The singer-songwriter admitted his decision to sign the deal for Las Vegas came after a discussion with his son Miles.
He told the LA Times newspaper: ''My 21-year-old son, I said to him, ''Miles, what do you think about me playing Vegas?'' He said, ''Oh, my God, dad, that'd be the coolest thing in the world!' 'So it's just time.''
He added: ''And it's a perfect place to try out new material, to get close to what's going on in the business.''
'Lionel Richie -- All the Hits' will kick off on April 27, 2016.
