Lionel Richie sounds 'easeful and soulful' on Tuskegee

People going to see the Lionel Richie tour this year will probably be looking forward to hearing the legendary singer perform tracks from his new album Tuskegee.

And, according to a review by the New York Times, the singer still has the same quality to his voice that first made him popular all those years ago.

"Mr Richie sounds terrific: easeful and soulful, if no longer exactly youthful. The characteristic smoothness of his delivery makes him both an approachable partner and a malleable backup singer," the newspaper said of his album.

Tuskegee is a collaborative record and some of the stars Richie worked with include Willy Mason, Shania Twain and Little Big Town.

No doubt he will also be treating people with Lionel Richie tickets to some of his well-known hits - like Dancing on the Ceiling, Hello and Easy - as well newer tracks.

He will be playing a series of UK dates, taking in venues such as the O2 arena in London and Liverpool's Echo Arena.
