Rita Broe, Eden Project marketing director, said: “Lionel Richie is one of the finest acts ever to grace the Eden Sessions stage.

This is a great opportunity for people to catch up with one of our best-ever shows, whether you were there and want to re-live the experience or are watching it for the first time.”
Lionel Richie played two nights at the Eden Sessions – July 14 and 15. The first date was Lionel’s first-ever headline show in the South West and his first UK show since his legendary performance at Glastonbury.
The Sessions are a series of outdoor summer shows at the Eden Project in Cornwall, with the stage set against the backdrop of the spectacular illuminated Biomes.
The singer-songwriter from Tuskegee, Alabama played at Eden as part of his All The Hits world tour.
With more than 100 million albums sold worldwide, Lionel Richie is a global star and music icon with four Grammys, a Golden Globe and an Oscar to his name.
He 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 of the 1980s, 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 the heels of the success of his Tuskegee album, in 2013 Lionel launched a global tour entitled All The Hits, All Night Long and he has proved to fans that he can deliver exactly that.
The Eden Sessions will return in 2017 with acts to be announced soon. For more information, see www.edensessions.com.
