Fans excited to catch Lionel Richie and Mariah Carey on tour together are going to have to wait awhile longer. Lionel’s “All the Hits” tour with Mariah as opener, which was due to kick off March 15th in Baltimore, is being postponed so Lionel can recover from knee surgery.
"When you have been performing as long as I have it takes a toll on your body," Richie said in a statement. "Unfortunately, my recovery from a knee procedure will not have me 100 percent ready to start the tour next month. I don't want to disappoint my fans, and I look forward to being back on stage so we can all be 'Dancing on the Ceiling' together again."
The tour is expected to be rescheduled for the summer, with all previously sold tickets honored on the new dates, which have yet to be revealed.
