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 Sleep Train Amphitheatre. He'll perform hits from 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.

La Jolla Music Society continues this season’s Revelle Chamber Music Series with Europa Galante at MCASD Sherwood Auditorium. Founded in 1990 by Fabio Biondi, Europa Galante in a few short years has become the most internationally renowned and awarded Italian baroque music ensemble, receiving ‘Record of the Year’ nominations in Spain, Canada, Sweden, France and Finland. With a wide-ranging repertoire from the operas of Handel and Vivaldi to the great instrumental works of the eighteenth century, Europa Galante’s fresh performances on period instruments are hailed for their vitality and flair.
La Jolla Music Society enhances the concert-going experience by presenting “Preludes” – pre-concert chats and performances – prior to each performance, free to ticket-holders. Stanley Walens, avid musician, anthropologist, and cultural historian gives a pre-concert talk at 7 pm.
