Lionel Richie, Mariah Carey Announce Rescheduled Tour Dates

Tag: Pop

Lionel Richie and Mariah Carey have rescheduled their All the Hits tour. The original run, which was to begin this month, was postponed in late February following Richie's recent knee surgery.

"When you have been performing as long as I have it takes a toll on your body," Richie said in a statement at the time. "Unfortunately, my recovery from a knee procedure will not have me 100 percent ready to start the tour next month. I don't want to disappoint my fans, and I look forward to being back on stage so we can all be 'Dancing on the Ceiling' together again."

The new tour launches on July 21st in Oakland, CA and wraps in Seattle on September 5th. As Billboard reports, the 35-date tour has been shortened, with shows cancelled in Pittsburgh, Cleveland, St. Louis, Nashville and Charlotte. Lionel Richie's official website lists 22 rescheduled dates for the tour.

Live Nation released a statement via Billboard that explained the rescheduling had to fit around the artists' tight schedules. "We had a small window between Lionel's continued touring plans overseas in the fall and Mariah's scheduled Las Vegas residency to fit as many dates as we could route," the statement said.
