Lionel Richie and Mariah Carey, two of the most successful singers of all time, will unite for a joint tour in 2017.
The All the Hits Tour is a 35-date trek starting March 15th in Baltimore and ending in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on May 27th. Tickets for the joint trek go on sale to the general public starting December 17th at Live Nation.
Both Richie and Carey recently wrapped their respective headlining Las Vegas residencies: Richie’s All the Hits show resided at the Axis at Planet Hollywood Resort, while Carey’s #1 to Infinity occupied Caesars Palace’s at the Colosseum. Playing “all the hits” may be a stretch for the pop icons who each have vast numbers of chart-topping hits. Carey is just under Elvis Presley for holding the most Number One hits on the Billboard Hot 100.
In recent years, Richie has performed festivals like Bonnaroo, Outside Lands and Glastonbury. Carey will next appear December 31st in Times Square.
Both Richie and Carey have a string of hits that remain popular today. Richie’s catalog includes “All Night Long (All Night),” ”Hello” and “Stuck on You.” In addition to Grammy wins, he’s won an Oscar and Golden Globe.
Carey is only behind Elvis Presley for most No. 1 songs on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart with 18. Her hits include “Vision of Love,” ”Hero” and “We Belong Together.”
