Lionel trains in town
New Times statistical data from the 1980s indicates a sharp rise in pregnancies during the months when Lionel Richie tunes regularly resided in the top five. So far this year, the ceiling-dancin' man has judged American Idol, teamed up with Rob Zombie and Trina for a refurbishing of the Commodores' old smash "Brick House," and started touring behind his latest and greatest package, called Definitive Collection. As if the potency of ballads like "Say You, Say Me," "Endless Love," and "Hello" isn't enough, the album features -- hold on! -- a duet with Enrique Iglesias. At press time, we cannot guarantee definitive conception during or immediately following the Lionel Richie show this Friday. However, don't rule it out. Lionel Richie performs at 8 p.m. Friday, April 25, at the Mizner Park Amphitheatre, Federal Highway at NE Mizner Boulevard, Mizner Park, Boca Raton. Tickets cost $65. Call 561-962-4109.
