Stevie Wonder Announces Tour: Hits The Greek on Sept. 5
Stevie Wonder will hit the road this month for a 13 city U.S. tour. The man who just called to say I love you will kick off his tour, dubbed "Wonder's Summer Night," in San Diego at Humphrey's on August 23.
Wonder announced the details of the tour Thursday afternoon at a press conferenced in Century City. Those who were lucky enough to be in Century City this afternoon were treated to a mini-concert from the 57 year-old icon who performed hits like "Higher Ground" and "My Cherie Amor." For the rest of us, we'll have to wait until Wednesday, September 5th, when the tour stops in Los Angeles at The Greek Theater.
Tickets go on sale next Saturday, August 11th through Ticketmaster.
According to Pollstar, this is Stevie's first full-scale U.S. tour since 1986.
In other Stevie news: Wonder will be grand marshal of the September 2nd NASCAR Nextel Cup race at the California Speedway in Fontana, which was just named the Sharp Aquos 500.
