Lionel Richie postpone tour with Mariah Carey- citing slow recovery from knee procedure as reason
Lionel Richie postpone “All The Hits Tour”
Lionel Richie says he won’t recover from a knee procedure in time to launch his tour with Mariah Carey next month.
The 67-year-old singer said in a statement on Friday that their “All The Hits Tour” will be postponed until the summer. The 35-date trek was supposed to start on March 15 and through May 27.
Richie said “unfortunately my recovery from a knee procedure will not have me 100 per cent ready to start the tour.” He said he doesn’t want to disappoint his fans and he’s looking “forward to being back onstage so we can all be ‘Dancing on the Ceiling’ together again.”
Purchased tickets will be honoured at the new dates which is yet to be announced.
