Friday night, Lionel Richie kicked off his long awaited UK summer tour with a sold out show at Franklin’s Gardens, Northampton. Lionel was joined by very special guest Anastacia as he led an impressive performance to his fans.
 
Delighting fans and performing hits from his extensive and much loved repertoire spanning decades, crowds sung along to hits such as ‘Easy’, ‘Dancing on the Ceiling’, ‘Say You Say Me’, ‘Hello’ and ‘All Night Long’.
 
Last night’s show follows the news that the global superstar was awarded the ‘Special International Award’ at the Ivor Novello’s in London which is the only award of the night awarded to a non-British recipient. Earlier this year, Lionel had his hand and footprints immortalised in cement at the famed TCL Chinese Theatre Imax and this receiving the oldest reward in Hollywood.

The tour continues tonight at McDiarmid Park, Perth. Full tour details here.
