Both are successful entertainers in their own right. John Farnham has a career spanning over 40 years, with countless number one hits, sold out tours, and various theatre credits including the role of Jesus in Jesus Christ Superstar in the early 90's. His hit song The Voice has become an Australian anthem, with Whispering Jack holding the number one position for over six months, and the first Australian album to be released on CD within Australia.

Lionel Richie found success in the 60's with The Commodores before embarking on his own solo career in the early 80's. Best known for his expressive heartfelt ballads such as Hello,Truly and dance hits Dancing on the Ceiling and All Night Long, he's produced a total of six Top 40 singles in the UK since 2004. In 2011 he toured Australia with Guy Sebastian, both recording the single All Night Long to help raise money for the Australian floods and NZ earthquake relief.
This will be a unique not to be missed concert event, with both artists sure to be singing their hits we've all grown to love.
I think the whole world is dying to hear someone say, 'I love you.' I think that if I can leave the legacy of love and passion in the world, then I think I've done my job in a world that's getting colder and colder by the day. - Lionel Richie
