What do we know about Lionel Richie at Eden?

Lionel, who has four Grammys, a Golden Globe and an Oscar to his name played two blockbuster, sell-out shows at Eden in July 2016. 

The gigs were hailed as among the greatest ever in the history of the Sessions and his return will be eagerly anticipated by his legions of fans.
"We are thrilled to announce today that Lionel Richie will be returning to Eden. 

"He is a true legend and showman with an amazing repertoire of hits. 

"People who saw him here a few summers ago will never forget the charm and magic he brought to the Eden stage. 

"We can't wait to welcome you back, Lionel".

Rita Broe, MD of Eden Sessions Ltd


What do we know about The Script at Eden?

Irish alt-pop trio The Script are riding high after their sixth studio album Sunsets & Full Moons reached number one in the charts last month (November 2019).

Band member Danny O'Donoghue, who is also well known as a coach on the first two series of The Voice UK, rates the new album the most poignant they have ever made.

Danny said: "Our music was always about being together with the audience, and writing about your own feelings, and sharing them".

Eden Sessions Ltd Managing Director, Rita Broe, cannot wait to welcome the band to the Biomes.

"With such a charismatic frontman in Danny and a fabulous catalogue of songs, The Script are tailor-made for the Eden Sessions.  

"We are honoured to be able to announce them for 2020 and confident that this will be one of the highlights of the summer".
