Grammy Award winning performer Lionel Richie has been announced for a spectacular open air concert in the grounds of one of the UK’s most iconic stately homes on 15th June 2022, as part of a brand new concert series.
Presented by leading music promoters Senbla, Live At Longleat will bring live music to the grounds of the incredible house that possesses over 450 years of history, and is one of the most beautiful examples of Elizabethan architecture.
Lionel Richie is the first artist announced as part of Live At Longleat. The show will form part of his 2022 UK tour, and is rescheduled from the original date which was due to take place in Bristol, but could not for logistical reasons. Tickets for the original Bristol date remain valid for Longleat.
Lionel Richie has four Grammys, a Golden Globe and an Oscar to his name, and has sold well over 100 million albums worldwide, with iconic hits such as ‘All Night Long’, ‘Dancing on the Ceiling’, and ‘Hello’. Sales of his latest album ‘Hello from Las Vegas’ put him at Number One in the Billboard Artist 100 chart in August last year (2019).
The singer-songwriter from Tuskegee, Alabama first found fame singing and writing songs with The Commodores including the all-time classics ‘Three Times A Lady’, ‘Stuck On You’, ‘Still’, and ‘Easy’.
After turning solo, he became one of the most successful artists in the world, earning a string of 13 top ten hits between 1981 and 1987, including nine number one singles such as ‘Endless Love’, ‘Truly’, and ‘Say You (Say Me)’.
On performing at Longleat, Lionel said:
“I am really excited to be playing at Longleat. I know we’ll all have such an incredible night of partying together. It's a venue steeped in music history - The Rolling Stones and Elton John have both headlined Longleat and I'm honoured to be joining the esteemed list! See you all next year!”
Longleat has a rich history of hosting live music events, from the 60s advent of pop with the likes of Billy J Kramer and The Rolling Stones who performed to 16,000 people, through to more modern times with Elton John performing in 2016.
Ceawlin, Lord Bath, Executive Chairman of Longleat Enterprises added: “We are delighted to provide the backdrop to this series of new music evenings on the Longleat Estate. We know how special outdoor music events can be, and with the estates stunning landscaped grounds, alongside a world class line-up of music acts, we’re excited with what 2022 has set in store.”
Live At Longleat will add to this rich musical history, adding more musical history to one of the most stunning locations in the country.
