Lionel Richie has revealed he is "incredibly excited" to perform in the UK.
The American soul singer has made a triumphant return to the stage, wowing crowds in European cities like Amsterdam and Frankfurt, after being forced to reschedule a number of UK dates due to illness.
"Being back out on the road is amazing, the crowds have been fantastic and I am very excited about heading back to the UK soon," he said.
Lionel - who has sung some of his biggest hits including Easy, Stuck On You, Three Times A Lady and Say You Say Me during the gigs - will kick off his UK shows at Birmingham's LG Arena on October 26, before playing two nights at London's O2 Arena.
He will also perform tracks from his new album Tuskegee when he takes to the stage in Liverpool, Manchester, Cardiff, Newcastle, Sheffield, Aberdeen and Glasgow before his closing night at the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham on December 15.
