lionel-ritchieLionel Ritchie, formerly with the band the 70’s band the Commodores,  has announced his plans to go on tour after the release of his two most recent albums “Going Home and “Just Go”.  Ritchie’s song “Easy” is featured on the SongChannels.com’s Top Music Video Picks.

“We’re trying to finalize whether it’s going to be in the fall or the first of the new year,” he says. “I’ve spent most of my time outside of America for the last three or four years, but the interest is there, so I said, ‘Let’s go back across America again.” Richie expects to announce tour dates during the summer or early fall.

And, he adds, the long-promised Commodores reunion is also in the works. “It’s the No. 1 question we get,” Richie says. “I can honestly tell you before the end of the year, for sure, you’ll hear a rumble. I think now might be the proper time.” – Billboard

I just read about Fleetwood Mac’s new tour that begins in Northern California on May 20th. Fleetwood Mac’s 80s hit Tell Me Lies is featured on SongChannels top 100 music videos page.

“Legendary supergroup Fleetwood Mac will be embarking on their first concert tour in five years and will include all the Macs’ many greatest hits from over the course of one of rock’s most enduring and influential bands of our time.

“We love our band and think the title of the tour “UNLEASHED” perfectly describes how we all feel when we get on stage together – especially in 2009″
