We here at Seattle Weekly HQ just fielded a phone call from someone now known around the office as the "crying grandma" and after a little fun, it's time to come clean. Lionel Richie, contrary to what was previously reported, will not be performing at the Shanty Tavern this Friday. In his review of Richie's new release Tuskegee, Mike Seely also reported that the singer "just added the Wedgwood Broiler to his burgeoning restaurant empire," which is also untrue. But if you still carry a torch to see Richie perform "All Night Long" live, you might be able to hit up this guy to do some marketing for you.

To be fair, the Shanty is usually game for a good time. But if you're looking for a consolation prize, here's a a taste of Shania Twain and Richie performing "Endless Love," from Tuskegee.
