Singer-songwriter Lionel Richie got his start in Motown as part of the Commodores, but it's as a solo artist that he really shines. He became one of the most successful male solo artists of the 1980s, earning No. 1 hits starting with his debut in 1982 with "Truly." His other hits include the Caribbean-flavored "All Night Long," "Endless Love" with Diana Ross, "Hello" and "Say You, Say Me," which also won an Academy Award and a Golden Globe. Now the five-time Grammy winner is following up a sold-out European run with a North American tour, including a stop at the Honda Center of Anaheim. He'll perform hits from his 30-year discography, beginning with his eponymous 1982 debut and extending through 2012's Tuskegee, a platinum-selling collection that features duets of his hits with a variety of artists. Word on the street is that these concerts tend to become a giant sing-along, so brush up on your lyrics and get ready for some of the greatest ballads the '80s had to offer and much more. Sharing the stage with the five-time Grammy winner will be CeeLo Green. Known for his solo career as well as being a part of the soul duo Gnarls Barkley, Green has recorded numerous hits and is most widely recognized for the chart-topping single "Crazy" and his time as a judge on The Voice.

Quotes & Highlights
Viewers and Live Audience Help Pick The Most Innovative Routines.__ __
The Show: Hosted by Olympic Champions Brian Boitano and Kristi Yamaguchi, “Improv-Ice” will require each skater to perform to one contemporary piece of music chosen in advance by Lea Ann Miller, Artistic Director of Disson Skating, and one of The Goo Goo Dolls greatest hits, performed live by the band. To close the show, there will be a group number with The Goo Goo Dolls featuring music from their new album. The skaters will not get to hear any of the music before performing. The live audience and viewers will have the opportunity to vote for the skater they feel performed the most creative routine. Results will be announced on the television special.
The Cast: Includes 2009 World Champion Evan Lysacek, 2006 Olympic silver medalist Sasha Cohen, four-time World Champion and four-time Canadian National Champion, Kurt Browning, 2008 World Champion Jeffrey Buttle, three-time U.S. National Champion, two-time World Bronze Medalist and two-time U.S. Olympic team member, Michael Weiss, two-time Olympic Medalist Nancy Kerrigan, 2009 World Silver Medalist, five-time Canadian champion Joannie Rochette, and ten-time Canadian National Ice Dancing Champion, Shae-Lynn Bourne.
The Music: In anticipation of the follow-up release to their 2006 album “Let Love In”, set to drop in early 2010, four-time Grammy-nominated artists, The Goo Goo Dolls, will perform eight of their greatest hits live with the skaters and perform three numbers from their new album. The band has become one of the most globally respected and influential forces in popular music history, selling more than 10 million albums since 1987 and have been topping charts for decades, having an unprecedented string of 14 consecutive Number One and Top Ten multi-format hit singles including “Name,” “Slide,” Black Balloon,” Broadway,” “Here Is Gone,” “Big Machine,” “Sympathy,” “Stay With You,” “Before It’s Too Late,” “Jim’s Theme” (Treasure Planet),” and “Better Days,” which, due to its uplifting lyrical spirit, was adopted by CNN as an anthem for the news channel’s Hurricane Katrina recovery coverage. “Iris,” from the City Of Angels soundtrack, spent nearly 12 straight months on the Billboard charts and held the Number One position for 18 consecutive weeks. By that point, sales of the soundtrack exceeded a phenomenal 10 million copies worldwide.
The title track of their 2006 album “Let Love In” marked the band’s 20th anniversary and gave the band a record Top 10 hits in Adult Top 40 history, beating artists including Matchbox Twenty and Sheryl Crow. Be one of the first to hear brand new tracks from the Goo Goo Dolls as they perform live at Improv-Ice.
