Dick Vitale, Lionel Richie and a guest

Dick Vitale is known for being one of the most enthusiastic sports announcers in the industry. But did you know he’s also a huge Lionel Richie fan? Could you possibly imagine sitting next to Vitale at a concert with the constant yelling and spurts of excitement? No? Neither could I, but Vitale attended a Richie show Monday night, and if his tweets were any indication of what happened, you can definitely bet it was an amazing show.

Richie and CeeLo performed at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa Monday night, and Vitale tweeted his way through Richie’s performance. Vitale shared his concert experience with his followers on Instagram and Twitter. Take a look at a few of his highlights:

Can you hear his voice in your head yet?

Between all of the tweeting, I’m hoping Vitale had the opportunity to share some of his slick dance moves. I can just see him now, grooving to “Dancing on the Ceiling.”
