Hello Cornwall!  Global superstar Lionel Richie returns to play Eden Sessions

The Eden Project announced today that Lionel Richie is the first stellar act confirmed for next year’s Eden Sessions.

The international superstar is set to appear in front of the world-famous Biomes on Wednesday June 7, 2023.

He played two sell-out shows at Eden in July 2016.  The concerts were hailed as among the greatest in the history of the Sessions.

Rita Broe, Managing Director of Eden Sessions Ltd, said: “We’re thrilled to announce Lionel Richie as our first confirmed act for the 2023 Sessions. His previous shows at Eden were amazing and live long in the memory.

“We’re sure his legions of fans will be as excited as we are that he’s taking to our stage again next summer.”

Hailing from Tuskegee, Alabama, Lionel Richie is a true music icon famous worldwide for mega-hits such as Endless Love, Lady, Truly, All Night Long, Penny Lover, Stuck on You, Hello, Say You, Say Me, and 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 acclaimed song catalogue also includes his early work with The Commodores, where he developed a ground-breaking style that defied genre categories, penning smash hits such as Three Times a Lady, Still, and Easy.

This year (2022) Lionel Richie received the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song by the Library of Congress and was nominated to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

He has also been a judge on ABC’s American Idol for the past five seasons. He launched his Las Vegas headlining residency show, Lionel Richie – All the Hits in April 2016.

In an unforgettable evening featuring his brightest and best anthems which have defined the music icon’s unparalleled career, Lionel Richie recently extended his Back to Las Vegas residency with a 12-show engagement.

Tickets for Lionel Richie at the Eden Project on June 7, 2023, cost £83 plus a £10.80 booking fee.

Tickets will go on sale to Inside Track Passholders from 12 noon on Wednesday November 2 until 12 noon Saturday November 5, 2022.

Tickets go on general sale at 12 noon on Monday November 7, 2022.

In September 2019 the Eden Project and global live events company AEG Presents announced a new partnership, Eden Sessions Ltd, to run the Eden Sessions.

In September last year Volvo Car UK announced a new three-year partnership as the Official Automotive Partner of the Eden Project and the Eden Sessions music concerts, a deal brokered by AEG Global Partnerships.

This long-term collaboration aims to inspire and educate visitors about people’s relationship with the environment and how we can protect the planet to create a safer future.
