“The show, which features Malcolm Pitt on lead vocals, is in its third year of touring and has received rave reviews across the country. Following his recent appearances with Lionel Richie himself on ITV’s Sunday Night At The Palladium and the Graham Norton Show for the BBC, Malcolm Pitt delivers a powerhouse performance celebrating the music of Lionel Richie and the Commodores, recreating the sensational on-stage magic of one of the most successful balladeers of all time.”

Malcolm said; “I would listen to Lionel’s second album Can’t Slow Down all the time as a teenager, not realising then that I was going to become a singer and sing these fantastic songs for a living.

“I can still remember when I first heard All Night Long at a house party and everyone was singing around a record player. It was such a memorable experience.

"And of course, Hello seemed to be at number one forever.”

This award winning five-star production also features a line-up of world-class musicians including musical director Jonny Miller from Talon – The Best of Eagles.
