Lionel Richie plans 'family gathering' holiday in Ireland after Punchestown gig


Soul and pop legend Lionel Richie was the king of Punchestown on Saturday taking fans on a trip down memory lane with an arsenal of hits.

It was an outdoor event at Punchestown Racecourse – but at the age of 67 he continued to prove on his current All The Hits Tour that he has enough fuel in the tank to perform All Night Long.
Although the attendance was smaller than predicted for the first pop and soul one-day music festival at the venue, the crowd enjoyed top-notch performances from an eclectic mix of artists, ranging from golden oldies Steve Harley, Sister Sledge and Albert Hammond to some of the latest stars.
