It has been confirmed that megastar Lionel Richie has added a second night to his Nocturne Live dates due to popular demand.
The pop icon is the first artist confirmed for next year’s Nocturne Live which returns to Blenheim Palace from June 14– 18 as tickets go on sale tomorrow.
“I’m really looking forward to heading to Blenheim Palace next summer. The UK crowds are some of the best in the world”
Demand for the pre-sale tickets for the Wednesday June 14 concert led to Nocturne announcing that a second date has now been added for Thursday June 15.
The Oscar, Golden Globe and Grammy-winning singer was first scheduled to headline Nocturne in 2020, which was then postponed due to the pandemic. The same happened again in 2021 and 2022, despite his concert dates selling out instantly. read about it here
