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.

As others have mentioned the music was outstanding and the venue was perfect but I will point out a few shortcomings. The directions to the Rose Garden are not that obvious and you have to thread your way past the outdoor pool to get there. I did not realize that there are 3 tiers of ticket prices and that the General admission (Goldstar) is located only on the periphery of the seating (3 tables on either side). Next time I attend I would probably purchase preferred (reserved) seating. This event was sold out and it seemed our server was really hard pressed to take orders and deliver food and drinks, we finally had drink in hand at 6:45... Valet parking is $25 so we self parked for $5 around the side of the hotel, no problem there. Restrooms were a little bit of a hassle as it appeared that there were only two unisex rooms available by the poolside. As always, the quality of the music overcame any small nuisance factor..

The Chicago Tribune has awarded pianist/singer Judy Roberts the title Chicago’s Favorite Jazz Woman, yet she is also recognized as a worldwide jazz star thanks to the success of her international recordings and concert performances. From the Midwest to Phoenix to Singapore, Judy is best known for her fun-loving approach to an eclectic and extensive repertoire, her hard-swinging piano playing, her ability to combine lush and sensitive vocals with rapid-fire scat singing and for her unique ability to communicate with her audience in a relaxed and intimate style.
Food and beverages will be available for purchase.
