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 vocalists of the 1980s, earning No. 1 hits starting with his debut in 1982, "Truly." 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 KeyArena. He'll perform favorites from throughout his 30-year discography, beginning with his eponymous 1982 debut and extending through last year'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.

Growing up in a musical family and influenced by an especially inspiring music teacher, Dianne’s love with music began at age 11. After singing in her high school jazz band at George Washington High School in Denver and studying music at the University of Colorado, she moved to Los Angeles where she became interested in Latin-style music and toured with Brazilian jazz funk master Sergio Mendes. She later toured with singer Harry Belafonte for three years, before joining trumpet maestro Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra for several Duke Ellington projects in celebration of Ellington’s Centennial. In 2000, Dianne received the first of her four successive Grammy awards for Best Jazz Vocal Performance, and in 2002 her musical world exploded with a performance at the closing ceremony of the Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City, the Ella Fitzgerald Award at the Montreal International Jazz Festival, a compilation CD release on Blue Note, and an appearance on the season finale of HBO’s “Sex & the City”. She spent much of 2003 touring the world, received an Honorary Doctorate from the Berklee College of Music, then closed out that year performing a program of Gershwin with the Berlin Philharmonic on New Year’s Eve conducted by Simon Rattle – a performance broadcast live throughout much of Europe and the Far East. Other career highlights for Dianne include her first Christmas album in 2004, her appearance in (and Grammy for the soundtrack of) 2005’s “Good Night and Good Luck”, the George Clooney film about newsman Edward R.Murrow, her performance in the 2007 award-winning documentary about composer, singer, and Ellington contemporary Billy Strayhorn, her participation in “Sing the Truth,” a musical celebration of Nina Simone which also featured Liz Wright and Angelique Kidjo, and two recent appearances at the White House – at the 2011 White House dinner honoring the president of China and again at the 2012 Governors’ Dinner.
