Richie is a pop music icon. He has sold over 125 million albums worldwide, and in 2022 – along with getting induced into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame – e was also awarded the Icon Award at the American Music Awards. That is the kind of resume you need to be able to headline a tour with Earth, Wind, & Fire, a group that has also sold over 100 million albums sold and nine Grammys to their name.
Richie posted on Instagram that this was a tour he had been wanting to do for years. With classic songs like ‘Hello” and “Dancing on the Ceiling” under his belt, Richie concerts are a must for fans who would rather sing along with the artist than just stand there and watch!
