I grew up in a house that often was filled with the sounds of Lionel Richie so I was looking forward to seeing the iconic solo artist and Commodores frontman in person. Concerts by “classic” artists are often not more than a novelty act; a band trying to cash in as many times as possible on their previous fame. Let me assure you, Lionel Richie is not that. While he may be seen as a gimmick by many, the sheer power of Richie’s performance leaves no question why he still tours and makes music. The man is brimming with enthusiasm and joy of performing as he sang hit after hit with power and conviction.
