As predicted, Lionel Richie and Cee Lo Green put on one heck of a show on Tuesday. Performers of the purest form, they didn't disappoint the packed house at the Yum! Center. Arriving just on time, I was really amazed at the showmanship right from the start!
Cee Lo got things going in spectacular fashion with hits from his solo albums as well as throwing in 'Crazy' from his Gnarles Barkley fame. I suppose I shouldn't have been surprised by the theatrics but they were really amazing all around. Synchronized dancing, maybe not the most flattering tank top, but grooves a plenty were going down and the crowd was digging it.
By the time Mr. Richie came on everyone was primed and ready. I'd certainly say that most were there for him, obviously, but I actually know some folks that came just for Cee Lo! Lionel is a true professional, no doubt about it. The delivery of his arsenal of hits was purely flawless and you could certainly tell this wasn't his first rodeo. It was really something to see and if you have another chance, it's really worth the investment. Really special thanks to those at the Yum! Center for the hospitality and get to this show if you have the chance. As Lionel has been quoted as saying when people ask 'what songs are you going to sing?', his answer is actually back to the fans as 'what songs are YOU going to sing?!' All of them kind sir. In me you trust, xoxo.
