The Eden Project announced today that Lionel Richie is confirmed for next year’s Eden Sessions.

The global superstar is set to play in front of the world-famous Biomes on 14 June 2022.

Earlier this month, Eden announced that the Sessions series of concerts planned for June and July of this year would not take place due to the impacts of the pandemic and restrictions on outdoor audiences.

Eden says the ambition is that all of the acts set for this year will be rescheduled to play and that they are contacting all existing ticket purchasers with details. Original tickets remain valid for Lionel Richie and any other show that is rescheduled.

A limited number of tickets and packages for the rescheduled Lionel Richie Eden Session are now available to purchase at

Lionel Richie, whose classic tracks include All Night Long, Dancing On The Ceiling and Hello, played two sell-out shows at Eden in July 2016. 

Rita Broe, Managing Director of Eden Sessions Ltd, said: “It’s great to be able to confirm that Lionel is coming back to Eden in the summer of 2022.   His previous shows were fabulous and we can’t wait to welcome him back.”
