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.

Pack up the picnic basket, shades and flip-flops, and head out to the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater for the start of Pacific Symphony’s Summer Festival 2007—the 20th season of symphonic music in the great outdoors!
The “Good Vibrations” concert is all about music that captures the essence of summer—sea, sun, sand and surf. Conducted by the always charismatic Richard Kaufman, the Symphony’s principal pops conductor, the concert features the Grammy-nominated surf band Papa Doo Run Run as they rock the amphitheater with Beach Boys hits such as “California Girls” and “Surfin’ U.S.A.” The program also includes selections from the movies “Pirates of the Caribbean,” “The Little Mermaid” and “Jaws.” Plus, there will be a few favorite patriotic tunes, a tribute to the Armed Forces—and a brilliant fireworks finale!
“This year’s July 4th concert will be an exciting trip back to the very cool music of the ’60s,” says Maestro Kaufman. “The orchestra will also thrill the audience with music from films whose stories take place on the ‘high seas,’ including music from ‘Mutiny on the Bounty,’ Richard Rodger’s ‘Victory at Sea,’ ‘Splash’ and ‘The Caine Mutiny.’ It will be a night of great music and a chance for the audience to go ‘surfin’ with the Symphony.”
