Lionel Richie is teaming up with veteran singer John Farnham for a joint tour of Australia. The two crooners will launch a double bill show in March (14) and will take the tour to cities including Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Farnham, who has previously enjoyed joint tours with stars such as Olivia Newton-John, Sir Tom Jones and Stevie Nicks, reveals hitting the road with Richie is a dream come true. He says, "You never think these dreams will actually come true," while Richie adds of Farnham's talent, "He pours his heart into a ballad and gives everything to an anthem." The tour kicks off in Swan Valley on 2 March (14).
