Lionel Richie & CeeLo Green - Cruzan Amphitheatre, West Palm Beach - July 15

"You're always going to remember three things from tonight. Where you were, what you were doing, and who you were doing," Lionel Richie told the large crowd at Cruzan Amphitheatre on Tuesday night before letting out that wide grin underneath his signature mustache. He then sauntered over to the piano to sing "Easy."

Say what you will about Lionel Richie, and many critics have over the years, but the man does not lack confidence. He named his tour All the Hits All Night Long, and for the two hours he was on the stage, nearly all of the two dozen songs he played were ones that anyone whose car radio ever got stuck on an easy-listening station would recognize.

Not that Lionel would let you forget how many hits he was responsible for.
