New York - Lionel Richie is ready for Las Vegas.

The singer announced on Wednesday that he will launch a residency called Lionel Richie - All the Hits on 27 April 2016 at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.

Richie will play 20 shows in April, May, September and October. Tickets, which go on sale on Friday, range from $59 to $199, not including service charges.

Richie says he decided to launch a Vegas residency after speaking to his 21-year-old son, Miles.

"I asked him, 'So Miles, what do you think about Vegas? Should I do it?' He goes, 'Oh my God, dad. We are going to have the great time. WE are going to have the greatest time,'" Richie said in an interview.

The shows will include hits such as All Night Long (All Night), Hello, Stuck on You, Say You, Say Me and Dancing on the Ceiling.

In addition to the residency, 66-year-old Richie will be honoured by The Recording Academy next year as its MusiCares person of the year. Performers at the 13 February gala include Pharrell Williams, Luke Bryan and Lady Antebellum.

"I don't know who else is coming. I think Stevie Wonder is coming maybe, but first of all, let me tell you, what a great honour," Richie said. "That's what I call ... really high cotton when you're in that group of honourees. When you start thinking about Dylan and Streisand and stuff ... that's quite an accomplishment."
