Music diva Mariah Carey and hitmaker Lionel Richie are set to hit the road together for their co-headlining All the Hits tour, the pair announced today.
The music legends will perform on 35 dates from March through May, including stints at Madison Square Garden and The Hollywood Bowl before concluding at Fort Lauderdale’s BB&T Center on May 27.
For Carey, the All the Hits tour continues her seemingly non-stop performance schedule. The five-time Grammy winner spent the spring and fall of this year traveling the globe on her Sweet Sweet Fantasy tour, before wrapping up on Nov. 26. She is currently in the middle of her holiday residency show at New York’s Beacon Theatre where she performs hits from her 1994 album Merry Christmas, the best-selling holiday album of all time.
Richie will close out the year with his own limited engagement residency at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.
All the Hits is certainly an appropriately named tour for Carey and Richie, as she holds the record for most no. 1 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 chart of any solo artist with 18, and he earned five no. 1 hits as a solo artist and an additional two as frontman of The Commodores. Carey earned a no. 2 hit for her 1994 cover of the Richie/Diana Ross classic duet “Endless Love,” though she recorded it with the late Luther Vandross. Fans can certainly expect to hear the pair’s biggest songs on tour, including “Hero,” “Always Be My Baby,” “All Night Long,” and “Hello.”
Tickets are on sale to the general public on Saturday, Dec. 17. Don’t miss out!
