May 8th, 2012

It was announced today that legendary singer Lionel Richie will be the opening act when Jimmy Buffett plays Comerica Park this summer:

Lionel Richie — surprise! — will open for Buffett at the Detroit Tigers’ home, promoters announced Tuesday. Richie’s “Tuskegee,” which features country versions of his biggest hits, topped Billboard’s Top 200 albums chart for two weeks last month and has sold more than 600,000 copies, making it the year’s best-selling country release.

Tickets for Buffett’s show, $39-$179, go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday via Tickets.com and at the Comerica Park box office. Tickets are also available by phone at (866)-668-4437.

The Buffett show, the “Margaritaville” singer’s first-ever concert in Detroit city limits and his biggest Michigan concert to date, will also feature an all-day beach bash in the Comerica Park parking lot.

Buffett appears on the duet “All Night Long” on Richie’s new album Tuskegee.
