Lionel Richie’s latest tour is called All of the Hits, All Night Long and it did exactly what is said on the tin… to the delight of a packed Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle.

The 65-year-old was full of energy during his near two-hour set, frequently mopping his sweaty brow with a towel and changing his jackets three times as he rattled through classic tune after classic tune.

As well as his substantial solo back catalogue, the crowd were also treated to a clutch of Commodores classics like Easy, Three Times a Lady and Brick House, with the five-time Grammy winner quick to acknowledge his audience was made up of three camps.

There were: “the guys that have been with the Commodores from the beginning”; “the people who joined me at All Night Long”; and finally: “the folk who stop me in the street and say, ‘Mr Richie, my mom is always listening to your music’”.
