Lionel Richie is set to reunite with his old band The Commodores.

The All Night Long singer – who quit the group in 1982 to pursue solo projects – wants to do a reunion tour within the next two years as he is worried time is running out.

He said: “We better do it now, or in the next 10 years nobody would care.”

The 58-year-old star doesn’t want to waste any more time in organising the reunion, following the death of lead guitarist Milan Williams two years ago.

Last year, bassist Ronald La Pread joined Lionel on stage on his last tour to perform some of the band’s greatest hits including Three Times A Lady and Brick House.

If The Commodores comeback does happen it will be the latest in a long line of band reunions.

Take That announced they were getting back together in 2006, while last year the Spice Girls reunited for a world tour.

The Police also had a sell-out comeback tour, and most recently, Genesis – fronted by Phil Collins – got back together.
