The legend who needs no introduction – Lionel Richie – has announced that he will be performing just down the road from our North Wales holiday parks, next summer. The soul singer is set to perform his gig at Parc Eirias in Colwyn Bay on Sunday, June 19 as part of just half a dozen shows in the UK. Along with the date in Wales, the tour will take Richie to some other exotic locations including Chile, Argentina, Brazil, South Africa and Las Vegas. You might recall the spectacular performance that Lionel Richie gave to more than 100,000 people when he headlined the Sunday date at Glastonbury Festival, which has catapulted him back into the minds and ears of fans, both new and old. When announcing the tour dates, the singer said: “It’s been an unforgettable year and I can’t wait to return to the UK to see my fans. “It’s always been a really special place for me and this year in particular the UK has been incredible to me. I’m excited to be getting out there and seeing some new faces and I’m sure some old ones too.” He added: “It’ll be the first time I’ll have been to Colwyn Bay and I can’t wait.” If you would like to get your hands on some tickets for the gig at Parc Eirias, they go on sale this Friday, December 4th from 10am.
