, Staff

Lionel Richie will continue his worldwide “All The Hits All Night Long” through the summer with help from special guest CeeLo Green. The legendary singer will make pair of stops in New England, including a performance at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, Massachusetts on Tuesday, June 24. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $25 to $125, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation.

“I’m so lucky to have the collection of songs that I can play for my fans, it becomes a giant sing-along most nights,” said Richie in a press release. “People always ask me ‘what are you going to sing tonight Lionel?’ and I always laugh and reply, ‘what are you going to sing tonight?'”

Richie is rumored to be writing and recording new music for a brand new original album. His last release was 2012’s Tuskegee, a duets album with a cast of country artists. Named for the city in Alabama where he grew up, it features Richie performing a selection of his greatest hits with Jason Aldean, Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, Willie Nelson, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Rogers, Blake Shelton, Shania Twain and many others.

Following the show in Massachusetts, Richie will return to New England for a performance at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut on Saturday, July 26. Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster for $65 and $85.

Green is expected to release his Girl Power, his highly anticipated fourth studio album and follow-up to 2010’s The Lady Killer, this spring. Last year, his hip-hop group Goodie Mob released their fifth album, Age Against the Machine. He and Dnager Mouse are also repotedly looking to begin work on a new Gnarls Barkley album, their first since 2008’s The Odd Couple.
