LAS VEGAS (March 25, 2019) – Lionel Richie will take fans on a musical journey when he performs his iconic hits at Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas for two nights only, Aug. 9 and 10.

With more than 100 million albums sold worldwide, an Oscar®, a Golden Globe®, four GRAMMY Awards®, the distinction of MusicCares Person of the Year in 2016 and Kennedy Center Honoree in 2017, Richie is a true music icon. The Tuskegee, Alabama native is one of only two songwriters in history to have charted No. 1 records for nine consecutive years.
