Lionel Richie’s Moves UK and Irish Tour Dates to 2022

14th April 2021 | Category: Concerts

Lionel Richie has rescheduled his UK and Irish tour dates to 2022. 

The ‘Hello’ tour was originally set to take place in 2020, before being rescheduled to this summer. Now, a third set of dates have been announced due to continued COVID-19 restrictions.

“I was originally scheduled to bring my ‘Hello’ Tour to the UK and Europe in the summer of 2020, but for the health and safety of all, with the world in lockdown, the live music industry was forced to reschedule their 2020 tour dates,” Richie wrote in a statement.

“With the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis, keeping everyone’s health and safety in mind, subsequent rulings and restrictions across the UK and Europe have meant the inevitable postponements of shows and the rescheduling of festivals at which I was scheduled to appear this summer.”

These are Lionel Richie’s rescheduled UK and Irish tour dates for 2022: 


2nd – Cardiff, Castle

4th – Dublin, St Anne’s Park

5th – Belfast, Ormeau Park

12th – Nottingham, Victoria Embankment

14th – St Austell, Eden Project

Before the pandemic, there was a European tour planned to piggyback off the singer’s successful Las Vegas residency. Currently, Richie is a judge on Season 4 of American Idol, alongside Katy Perry and Luke Bryan.

The legendary singer doesn’t plan on stopping any time soon. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone he shared his thoughts on retirement.

“They’re gonna have to carry me out, babe. Someone asked me years ago, “When do you plan on retiring?” And I said, “From what?” I’ve never had a job. People who work want to retire. I’m still the 19-year-old kid hanging out with the Commodores right down the road. I must admit the travel has gotten a lot better. But the fun and the adventure is still the same. People say, “But you play and sing the same thing.” No, no, I never did 2020 before. I did 2019, but I’ve never done 2020 and then I’m looking forward to 2021 and 2022 and 2023. The whole thing is a giant play period.”
