Hello's Richie bounds the stage with promises (photos)


Lionel Richie performed In Sri Lanka on the invitation of the Access Group to perform at their 25th Anniversary Bash in Colombo on (Saturday 11 October).

The American crooner belted hit after hit to the delight of the audience of which many were dyed in the wool Lionel Richie fans.

The singer bounded on to the stage with  promises of singing all night long but instead performed to a packed convention centre for just under eighty minutes. Performing to an audience of 4000 people, this event may have easily been one of the more intimate audiences he has ever performed to.
The crowd went wild when Richie sang one his most popular songs, ‘All Night Long’ which was infused with an energetic salsa jam. The crowd were on their feet boogeying like crazy by this time.
