The411 with Sherlene Shanklin: Is your social calendar booking up with concerts in Louisville. The KFC yum! Center adds multi-platinum selling artist, five-time Grammy winner and music icon, Lionel Richie, as part of his worldwide "All The Hits All Night Long" tour with special guest CeeLo Green.
Richie says "I'm so lucky to have the collection of songs that I can play for my fans, it becomes a giant sing-along most nights," said Lionel. "People always ask me 'what are you going to sing tonight Lionel?" and I always laugh and reply, "what are YOU going to sing tonight?" Richie's last album, Tuskegee, reached the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 after its March 12, 2012 release. Tuskegee was certified platinum on May 3, 2012 after selling one million units in the United States. Overall, Lionel has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide.
Green is currently a judge on the singing competition "The Voice". The five-time Grammy award winner formerly known as Gnarls Barkley of the southern hip hop group Goodie Mob also has an extensive music catalog. The song that made him a YouTube sensation was "Forget You".
I've asked several people what did they think about the lineup and they are surprised yet excited about the two performing on the same night. Richie and Green are scheduled for Tuesday, June 17th. Tickets for the show go on sale February 22nd at 10:00 a.m. You can pickup tickets from www.Livenation.com, www.Ticketmaster.com, the KFC Yum! Center box office an all Ticketmaster outlets. Charge by phone at 1.800.745.3000.
