Lionel Richie is "stuck on" touring.

On Tuesday, the legendary singer/songwriter/producer, 74, announced he'd be extending his Sing A Song All Night Long tour with special guests Earth, Wind & Fire.

The 13-date run, produced by Live Nation, will kick off Thursday, May 23 in Knoxville, Tennessee at Thompson Boling Arena, with stops in Jacksonville, Florida; Kansas City, Missouri; Columbus, Ohio; and more, before wrapping up on Sunday, June 16 in Pittsburgh at PPG Paints Center.

The 2024 tour follows the "We Are the World" artist's 2023 sold-out 20-date run of the Sing A Song All Night Long tour, which also featured the R&B and funk legends, and stopped in North American cities including Chicago, Boston, Toronto, San Francisco, Los Angeles and more.

The initial dates followed the American Idol judge's string of concerts in Europe throughout June and July, as well as Earth, Wind & Fire's U.S. concerts in June and July.

"Well, my friends, the time has come to announce a tour — not just any tour, but the tour I've been trying to do for years, and now it's going to actually happen," said Richie in a video shared to social media alongside the tour announcement in March 2023. "This is the place you need to be."
