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 PNC Bank Arts Center. 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.

The Knights* are an orchestra of friends from a broad spectrum of the New York music world who cultivate collaborative music-making and creatively engage audiences in the shared joy of musical performance. Led by an open-minded spirit of camaraderie and exploration, they expand the orchestral concert experience with programs that encompass their roots in the Classical tradition and their passion for musical discovery.
Led by conductor Eric Jacobsen, this past summer The Knights enjoyed a return engagement to the Ravinia Festival and a trio of concerts in Central Park. Their 2011/12 season highlights include collaborations with New York’s Museum of Modern Art and the Film Society of Lincoln Center. The orchestra tours Germany with cellist Jan Vogler in March and embarks on its first US tour in April. This past September, the group began a residency at New York Public Radio’s WQXR as the station’s first ensemble in residence, and the documentary film The Knights are Coming, produced by WNET/Thirteen, made its broadcast debut.
About the Ticket Supplier: 92nd Street Y
“The quintessential New York institution” —New York Times
The 92nd Street Y is about people. The people of New York City and the surrounding area. The people of the United States and of the world. It’s about people who entertain and challenge, inform and educate. It’s about people who learn and discover, observe and participate.
The 92nd Street Y operates in the context of a history that spans over 130 years. Founded in 1874 as the Young Men’s Hebrew Association where Jewish men could find harmony and good fellowship, the 92nd Street Y today has evolved into a world-renowned community and cultural center, an organization of exhilarating vitality and remarkable diversity, a proudly Jewish institution that reaches out to people of every race, ethnicity, religion, age and economic class.
At once a lecture hall, a performance space, a school, a health center and a community organization, the Y remains focused on its mission of enriching the lives of the people who pass through its doors – women and men, young families and senior citizens, accomplished artists and aspiring beginners, master instructors and enthusiastic students, world leaders and concerned citizens.
