Internationally acclaimed hit-maker Lionel Richie will tour South Africa in November.

The popular singer will perform in Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town.

Richie will take his adoring audience through a repertoire of classics like I Call It Love, Dancing On The Ceiling, Hello, Endless Love, All Night Long and the Commodores' Brickhouse, Easy and Zoom.

Richie has sold nearly 100 million albums and is the biggest selling R&B artist in South Africa.

He boasts a collection of awards that include five Grammys, an Oscar, a Golden Globe, and American Music and People's Choice.

Richie co-founded the Commodores in 1967 at Tuskegee Institute in Alabama. Signed in 1971 to Motown, the Commodores became one of America's most popular bands in the 1970s.

He left the Commodores after producing Kenny Roger's album Share Your Love in 1981.

Tickets are available from Computicket.
