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 from 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 Nikon at Jones Beach Theater. 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. Learn More

This was amazing. The most fun Ive had in a long time. It really is a rave mixed with a show, opera mixed with rock, amazing mixed with awesome.

I and my wife love the show. There was a mix of classical music, electronic music with ballet and opera thrown in. It was a hard to describe dance party. Our only problem was the venue itself which let everyone in an hour late with no explanation.

AcousticaElectronica makes its New York City debut at Le Poisson Rouge, after it’s smash success at Boston’s OBERON, the theatre-club of the American Repertory Theatre, with a unprecedented level of music and spectacle that blends the virtuosity found in the classical concert hall with the infectious energy of the late-night dance club. The best of both worlds: artistic depth and irresistible appeal. It is sexy and classy, sensuous and stoic, irreverent and reverential.
AcousticaElectronica presents some of the most innovative music from well-established and hot up-and-coming producers and composers. Bach meets a dance club back-beat, Carmen’s habanera meets techno, and Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata blends with trance for a listening experience unlike anything you have ever heard before.
This ultimate dance party becomes an immersive experience for the audience. Dancers, symphonies, operas, ballets, and live musicians all happen around every inch of the space to keep the audience guessing at every turn. A classical world becomes the technicolor world of the dance club as the audience escapes from their real lives to experience a night of dream, abandon, and ecstasy…
