“What’s the Velcro for,” I hear a lady in the back asking.

Why, for dancing on the ceiling, of course!

How else do you imagine you’ll be able to accomplish such a ridiculous feat?

A packed Lionel Richie concert
Seen in the picture is Lionel Richie dancing on a rather large ceiling along with some fans.

Arguably one of Mr Richie’s most famous hits, Dancing on the Ceiling had many listeners tapping their feet and humming along to its catchy tune.

The words left some hanging from their ceiling fans, trying to figure out how this whole topsy-turvy party thing worked, while others just listened and shook their heads, befuddled by such a strange activity.

Whatever side of the fence you were on, the fact remains that it was a huge pop hit.

But this was not his only hit though.

Lionel Richie plucked at the heartstrings of many a lover with hits such as All Night Long, Endless Love, Three Times a Lady and Say You, Say Me.

And now, the master of romance is heading to South Africa in 2016! And tickets are already on sale. So get yours and get down!
