The back-to-back shows mark Richie’s first headlining performances at the Wynn and are slotted into his “Hello” tour.
Shania Twain introduced Lionel Richie by relating a story about when she lost her voice in 2011, and sought Richie for counsel. Richie offered her a chance to duet with him on any of his songs, and she chose to re-cut “Endless Love.”
“We’re going to do it,’ Lionel Richie said of a return to a Vegas residency. “I love it here. But I need to see Paris, London, Copenhagen, and then after that we’re coming back to Las Vegas.”
Lionel Richie and Shania Twain teamed on a re-recording of “Endless Love” in 2012. The song was a monster hit for Richie and Diana Ross in 1981.
