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 Camden's Susquehanna Bank Center. 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.

About the Ticket Supplier: The Chamber Orchestra of PhiladelphiaMany great composers of the past, especially during the Baroque and Classical periods, wrote for orchestra with a chamber orchestra in mind. This included composers such as Bach, Handel, Vivaldi, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and their contemporaries.
These smaller-sized orchestras generally numbered from 12 to 30 musicians, depending upon the court, church or municipal budgets which supported them. It was only in the course of the 19th century that the term "orchestra" began to take on the meaning of the full-sized symphony which we know today.
The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia continues to perform orchestral works on a more intimate scale, as originally intended by the earlier composers, in the chamber-sized hall of the Perelman Theater in the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts.
