Lionel Richie To Be Named Legend Of Live At Billboard Touring Awards

Lionel Richie will be named Legend of Live at the 2014 Billboard Touring Awards at the upcoming Billboard Touring Conference & Awards at the Edison Ballroom in NYC on November 20.

"Though he has received countless awards for his albums and songs, Lionel Richie has never been honored specifically for his contributions to live music, so we are thrilled that Billboard will be able to do just that at the Billboard Touring Awards in November," says Billboard rep Ray Waddell. "Mr. Richie is an international superstar whose talent transcends musical trends. His fans span generations, and he is committed to making his live shows the best possible experience, and, as such, he personifies a Legend Of Live."

Richie's on a hot streak of late, having just received the BET Lifetime Achievement Award.
