WALK 97.5 Real Variety from the 90’s, 2K & Today! Mariah Carey & Lionel Richie Tour Troubles


Mariah Carey & Lionel Richie Tour Troubles

Mariah Carey and Lionel Richie have delayed their tour together and drastically reduced the number of shows.  Their “All the Hits” tour was scheduled to start this month, but Lionel recently suffered a knee injury and – let’s be honest – tickets were not selling like they hoped.  The new schedule now includes 21 instead of 35 shows over the summer, starting in July.  Demand was so low here in New York that they went from two shows to just one.


So many fabulous things coming up this year! Have you got your tickets yet? 🎤❤️🎶
