Anastacia to join Lionel Richie at Franklin's Gardens

Anastacia will be Lionel Richie’s special guest in Northampton in June, as the chart-topping duo kick off the ‘All The Hits’ tour at Franklin’s Gardens.

Richie’s summer tour begins in Northampton on Friday 1st June, 2018, with the international superstar visiting iconic venues across the UK and performing hits from his extensive and much-loved repertoire.

And with Anastacia – who boasts over 20million worldwide sales and has a dozen Top 40 entries to her name – now announced as joining Richie, the line-up for the blockbuster event is complete.

The Chicago-born artist burst onto the global music scene with her debut ‘Not That Kind’, and having been one of the fastest and biggest-selling artists of the new millennium, has since gone on to huge success across the globe.

Spurred on by hits ‘I’m Outta Love’, ‘Left Outside Alone’ and ‘Sick and Tired’, Anastacia has achieved number one hits in 19 countries – as well as more than 100 million YouTube views, three BRIT Award nominations and more.

This will be the first time Lionel Richie has appeared in the UK since his 2016 ‘All The Hits’ tour, which followed a phenomenal Glastonbury performance in 2015 – with over 200,000 people flocking to the Pyramid Stage to make up the biggest crowd of the weekend.

Fans will be able to enjoy timeless hits and sing along to classics such as ‘Lady’, ‘Truly, ‘Dancing on the Ceiling’, ‘Say You Say Me’, ‘Hello’ and ‘All Night Long’.

And while Richie has now sold over 100 million records worldwide, the four-time Grammy winner admits he is relishing the thought of returning to British soil once again.

“I’ve been missing the UK and can’t wait to make my long-awaited return, and to see parts of the country I’ve never made it out to before,” he said.

“The fans are always incredible and they make the atmosphere at every show electric, so I look forward to singing along with them soon.”
