After having knee surgery, Lionel Richie says he won’t recover in time for the launch of his tour with Mariah Carey in a few weeks.
The tour was supposed to start March 15 in Baltimore and wrap up in Fort Lauderdale May 27th with a total of 35 dates.
“When you have been performing as long as I have it takes a toll on your body. Unfortunately my recovery for knee procedure will not have me at 100% 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…”
There was a scheduled tour date at the ACC in Toronto on March 30. Purchased tickets will be honored at the new date. Richie says he will announce the tour dates soon.
