Stevie Wonder Announces First Major Concert Tour In More Than A Decade

United States
“A Wonder Summer’s Night” To Kick Off In 13 Cities Across North America

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 2, 2007 — One of contemporary music’s most iconic stars, the legendary Stevie Wonder, announced today that he is hitting the road for the first time in more than a decade. “A Wonder Summer’s Night” tour will feature an evening of music from Stevie, a performing and songwriting tour de force who has received an astounding 25 Grammy Awards as well the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award.

The tour kicks off on August 23rd at Humphries in San Diego, CA and culminates on September 20th in Boston’s Bank of America Pavilion. The tour is being produced by Live Nation (NYSE: LYV) and company executive Larry Magid. Tickets are available beginning on Saturday, August 11th.

“I am looking forward to performing in these venues under the stars. We are going to have some wonderful nights of intimate excitement,” said Stevie Wonder.

Stevie Wonder released the first live performance to reach the top of the U.S. charts with Fingertips Part II. His amazing career has earned him 49 top 40 singles, 32 number-one singles, and an Academy Award® for “I Just Called to Say I Love You,” plus Billboard’s 2004 Century Award. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989, alongside the Rolling Stones.

In 1983, Wonder spearheaded the realization of Martin Luther King Day as a national U.S. holiday. His participation in the massive 1985 “We Are the World” fundraiser for hunger in Africa was a music industry milestone, while his involvement to put an end to apartheid in South Africa is legendary.

Stevie Wonder was the youngest honoree of the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors. At the 22nd Kennedy Center Honors in 1999, President Clinton remarked: “In so many ways (Wonder) has helped to compose the remaining passages of Dr. King’s legacy.” But it is Wonder’s songwriting legacy that has inexorably connected him to the world. From Motown prodigy to groundbreaking innovator, he has always believed in music as a transformational force. Don’t miss these special dates. They will be nights of intimate excitement.
