Legendary R&B/soul singer Lionel Richie is set to return to Houston for the first time in four years, and this time he's bringing along modern-day legend Mariah Carey as a special guest. The two will play together at the Toyota Center on May 13, 2017.
The All the Hits Tour, a reprise of Richie's 2013-2014 tour, starts on Wednesday, March 15, in Baltimore. It will visit 34 cities across North America, including another Texas stop in Dallas on May 15.
Details are scarce on how big of a role Carey will have on the tour. She's specifically labeled as a "special guest," so she likely won't be a co-headliner alongside Richie. But such a big-name performer, who released her most recent album in 2014, is also not likely to be reduced to an opening act, either.
Just as with his 2013 Houston appearance, Richie will sing songs from throughout his long career as a solo artist and his time with The Commodores — thus, All the Hits. Expect to hear classics like "All Night Long," "Hello," "Dancing on the Ceiling," "Say You, Say Me," and many more.
