A new date for Lionel Richie’s concert in Wrexham has been announced.

The international pop superstar was due to perform at the Racecourse in town on Thursday 4th June.

However due to the coronavirus pandemic the European tour was postponed.

Today it has been confirmed that Lionel Ritchie will be singing and dancing “all night long” at the rescheduled date on Thursday 3rd June 2021.

In a message posted to social media last month, Mr Richie said: “Dear Fans, out of respect for the safety and well-being of the fans, band, crew and event organizers and due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, it is confirmed that my European tour will no longer take place in 2020.

“Every consideration has been given but with the subsequent governmental rulings it is no longer possible to undertake the tour.

“Efforts are being made to reschedule these dates to take place in the summer of 2021 and a full list of the new dates will be shared shortly, but in the meantime please visit the individual festival/event websites for further information.

“Stay safe & healthy! See you in 2021! Lionel.”

He will be joined at the rescheduled date by reality TV star and celebrity X Factor winner, Megan McKenna.

All tickets remain valid.
