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.

Most of the seats at this venue are plastic director's chair height style with built in arms and a footrest. Not a problem for me, but in observing the audience as I waited for the performance to begin, noticed that for some patrons, it was difficult for them to comfortably fit in the chairs since they are not adjustable in terms of width. Be forewarned and potentially spring the extra bucks for the select café style table seats down in the orchestra level if this is a concern for you or ask the staff at Lincoln Center to help find you a more comfortable location if possible.info • Feb 20 2014 star this tip starred

This performance was a complete treat for the ears! The vocal and musical talents of Stuart, Smith and the musicians backing them up ("The Fabulous Superlatives" earned their name!) were showcased in this concert that was part of Jazz at Lincoln Center's "American Songbook" series. From "Hillbilly Rock" to "How Great Thou Art" and bluegrass virtuosity in between this was a an education in the roots and blending of country music/gospel/blues/bluegrass. Peppered with great anecdotes and a mini-museum collection of items on stage from Stuart's personal collection (e.g.,Hank Williams' shirt, Johnny Cash's guitar) this concert was truly a gem of an experience. I would go see Stuart and Smith perform again and again and hope they decide to perform in New York City in the future. As to the venue, the acoustics are great and having a view of Columbus Circle as the backdrop for the performers gave it a surprisingly magical touch (instead of being distracting). Even though I found out about this concert just a few days prior, thanks to Goldstar I had access to a great evening of music!
