Mariah Carey and Lionel Richie postpone N.J. concert

NEWARK -- Fans ready to dance all night long in the Brick City will have to wait.

Lionel Richie and Mariah Carey announced Friday the postponement of their upcoming All The Hits tour, which was scheduled to visit the Prudential Center in Newark March 17. 

Richie, 67, is recovering from knee surgery and said on Twitter "unfortunately my recovery from a knee procedure will not have me 100 percent ready to start the tour."

"I look forward to being back onstage so we can all be 'Dancing on the Ceiling' together again." 

Richie added dates would be rescheduled for the summer and new dates will be announced next week. All tickets will be honored.
