International star Lionel Richie is set to perform in Sussex this year.

The soul singer, who has sold over 100 million albums worldwide, will be at the 1st Central County Ground in Hove on Saturday, June 23.

Lionel will be performing in Hove this June.

In a statement, he said:

“I’ve been missing the UK and can’t wait to make my long awaited return and to see parts of the country I’ve never made it out to before.

“The fans are always incredible and they make the atmosphere at every show electric, so I look forward to singing along with them soon.”

Known for hits including ‘Dancing on the Ceiling’, ‘Hello’ and ‘All Night Long’, the concert is part of a summer tour across the UK.

Sussex Cricket’s chief executive Rob Andrew said:

“We can’t wait to host Lionel and his fans for what will unquestionably be one of the highlights of the summer.

“The fact that a global superstar like Lionel has chosen us for his first ever visit to Sussex demonstrates how highly regarded the 1st Central County Ground is as a concert venue.”

Tickets for the performance will be going on sale this Friday (February, 2) from 10am.
