    Saw his first show last week as he is a fav of my wife. Show is called "All the Hits" and that is what you get as the only non-LR song he did was to mash Fire by the Ohio Players with Brickhouse.

    Highlight for me was the Commodore songs...wife liked everything...lots of shots of the crowd and you could tell the enthusiasm for the male attendees was much different for the married guys versus those trying to score some points taking their girlfriends.

    Lots of banter and crowd interaction from LR...not much stage theatrics which was fine by me. He even did "We Are the World" which was a favorite among the crowd who sang along with just about every song.

    I did think he might get a few guests on the stage since it was opening night, but it was just all Lionel which was great for his fans and enough for a tag-along like me.

    Would love to see his show. BUT - it looks like maybe 10 shows in May and then nothing until fall. Is that right?

    I went to the Lionel Richie show this weekend and loved it. I forgot how many "first dance" wedding ballads he performed. My wife keep dancing throughout the show.
