Lionel Richie with The Suffers Followed by the All Night Long After Party w/ DJ Mel

ACL Live is honored to present LIONEL RICHIE for a one-night-only concert on Saturday, October 24, during the big race weekend in Austin, Texas. This is our third annual race weekend exclusive event featuring legendary talent, special bars and bites, and a truly unique musical experience—you and your friends will be dancing on the ceiling in no time!

Lionel Richie. Music Icon. International Superstar. 100 million albums sold worldwide. Oscar winner. 5 time Grammy winner. 16-time American Music Award winner.  Golden Globe winner. 5 time People’s Choice Award winner.  A World Music Lifetime Achievement Award recipient.  Richie has a discography of albums and singles second to none and is part of the fabric of American pop music. In fact, he and Irving Berlin are the only two songwriters in history to achieve the honor of having #1 records for nine consecutive years. Richie’s last tour, All The Hits, All Night Long, proved to fans that he can deliver exactly that—a two-hour set spanning his entire catalogue of music, which was a tremendous success with fans and critics.

Richie has upheld his amazing run by relating simply and honestly to the people who now celebrate his records as quintessential moments in their lives. His rapport with his fans is legendary. Not only do entire audiences sing along at his concerts all over the world, but also the ‘first name basis’ he’s earned in their hearts has been protocol since his days with The Commodores. Come dance and experience this bond with fans firsthand at ACL Live on Saturday, October 24th. 

THE SUFFERS are a ten-piece band from Houston, TX who are redefining the sound of Gulf Coast Soul, intertwining elements of Classic American Soul with Rock & Roll. Both sonically and visually arresting, the large ensemble packs each position of the rhythm section and horn section with a level of talent and taste that provides the perfect foundation for singer Kam Franklin's massive voice. The band's sincerity and emotion are laid bare in their music, which has garnered an audience so broad and varied that they may prove to be the panacea for a jaded and stratified live music scene. The Suffers will be releasing their debut LP Make Some Room in 2015, hitting the road aggressively.

After the show, the dancing will continue with a private All Night Long After Party for all ticket holders with DJ MEL on the Music Porch at ACL Live, presented by Austin Way.
