Award-winning legend Lionel Richie will perform the final show of his "All the Hits" residency at Zappos Theater on October 20.

Spoiler alert! Here’s the truth about Lionel Richie in concert: It’s just as amazing as you pictured back in 1986, when you were trying to climb the walls like in the “Dancing on the Ceiling” video. You can’t defy gravity, but when Richie takes the stage at Zappos Theater inside Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino, those lyrics come to life. Richie—who in August received the key to the Las Vegas Strip—returns to Zappos Theater this month for the final nine dates of his 2018 residency. Those nine concerts are not enough to hold the man’s entire catalog, but it’s a Vegas show, so the set list calls for nothing but the hits from his solo albums and the Commodores era. Pro tip: Take a full phone charge into Zappos Theater because, even at capacity, there’s plenty of aisle space for Richie to make his way offstage and into the crowd. You don’t want to miss the moment when he’s serenading you by your side singing “Penny Lover.” VIP package prices vary by date, 8 p.m., ticketmaster.com/lionel
