Lionel Richie Postpones Joint Tour With Mariah Carey Due To Knee Surgery Complications — But Are Weak Ticket Sales Truly To Blame?
If it's Lionel Richie you're looking for, you'll have to keep looking.
Because the music icon just postponed his joint tour with Mariah Carey!
According to TMZ, the 67-year-old is still recovering from a surgery he underwent last month to address a preexisting knee problem.
Apparently, there were complications with the procedure and the injury did not heal correctly, so the Hello singer had to push his tour back to give himself more time to recover.
Lionel and Mimi were scheduled to kick off their All The Hits tour in Baltimore on March 15 — playing 35 shows, including Chicago, New York, Boston, Detroit and LA.
That delay might not be so bad considering sales were reportedly tanking, with Ticketmaster even offering a "buy one, get one free" promotion for the shows.
Could the poor sales be the real reason the show was postponed? Hmm…
Either way, we hope the music legend makes a full recovery in time for his tour, which is being rescheduled for the summer.
