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.

Good program. Every piece was enjoyable. The young piano player burned the keyboard and made and an exciting and emotional presentation. It has been a long time since I have gone to a concert and felt so please the the entire presentation.
A thrilling night in store! Pacific Symphony’s ever-popular Tchaikovsky Spectacular features the thrilling climax of thundering cannons and spectacular fireworks in the 1812 Overture. Before that, delightful music from Swan Lake, plus, acclaimed pianist Benjamin Pasternack performs one of the repertoire’s most powerful, most demanding and most popular works — Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3, featured in the 1996 hit movie Shine.
