LIONEL Richie will not be coming to Wrexham this summer as his tour is cancelled in the wake of coronavirus.

Richie was due to appear at the Racecourse Ground in Wrexham on June 4 as part of his Hello tour but, due to the ongoing global pandemic, the decision was made to cancel all of his appearances.

In a statement, Lionel Richie tweeted: “Out of respect for the safety and well-being of the fans, band, crew and event organizers and due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, it is confirmed that my European tour will no longer take place in 2020.

“Every consideration has been given but with the subsequent governmental rulings it is no longer possible to undertake the tour.

“Efforts are being made to reschedule these dates to take place in the summer of 2021 and a full list of the new dates will be shared shortly, but in the meantime please visit the individual festival/event websites for further information.

“Stay safe & healthy! See you in 2021!”

Megan McKenna, who won the X Factor Celebrity in 2019, was due to support Lionel at the Racecourse.
