International superstar and Tuskegee native Lionel Richie has a discography of albums and singles that are second to none. His music is part of the fabric of pop music. Richie boasts more than 125 million albums sold worldwide, an Oscar®, a Golden Globe®, four Grammy Awards®, a Kennedy Center Honoree in 2017, and induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 2022 Class. Richie is known for his mega-hits such as “Endless Love,” “Lady,” “Truly,” “All Night Long,” “Penny Lover,” “Stuck on You,” “Hello,” “Say You, Say Me,” “Dancing on the Ceiling,” and co-wrote one of the most important pop songs in history, “We Are the World,” for USA for Africa.

 

His song catalog also includes his early work with The Commodores, where he developed a groundbreaking style that defied genres, penning smashes like “Three Times a Lady,” “Still,” and “Easy (Like Sunday Morning).” Richie has had 11 consecutive years where he wrote #1 songs, and in recent years has headlined festivals including Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, & Glastonbury. Richie was a judge on ABC’s American Idol for the past 6 seasons and will return for season 7 in 2024. He recently extended his “Back to Las Vegas” residency at the Wynn.

 

Earth, Wind & Fire were one of the most musically accomplished, critically acclaimed, and commercially popular funk bands of the ‘70s. EWF’s all-encompassing musical vision used funk as its foundation, but also incorporated jazz, soul, gospel, pop, rock & roll, African music, and more. With a catalog of chart-topping hits including “September,” “Boogie Wonderland,” “After the Love Has Gone,” and “Let’s Groove,” EWF’s stage shows are elaborate, dynamic and widely considered a masterclass by one of the tightest bands in funk.
