Singer Lionel Richie is set to return to the UK to play in places he has never visited before.

The "All night long" hitmaker last toured the UK in the summer last year, reports

Richie will be visiting places like Scarborough in North East England on June 19 and Hove's 1st Central County Ground in East Sussex. He also has two dates at London's Hampton Court Palace Festival on June 5 and June 6, for what will be his only London shows of 2018.

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