Stevie Wonder never ceases to amaze. He is a true icon, a kind spirit, and funny. The man is really funny and the crowd loves him. I think the concert of the summer has to be Stevie Wonder at the Greek this past Wednesday. I'm not just saying that because I went with a superfan who drove all the way from Colorado to see this show or because everyone seemed to know every word and Stevie hardly let us sit for a few minutes before everyone would be back on their feet singing along with him. The only downside, no cameras allowed! I snuck mine in, of course, but I heard they were kicking people out who took pictures and I simply couldn't bear that thought, so not that many pictures were able to be taken.

The crowd was quite a sight to see. Noticeably different from the majority of the shows at the Greek, the age range was significantly higher than normal. I would call it a big cat show. All the guys with laminates were, well, mature - it wasn't one of the shows were the assistants got any leftover dibs on tickets.

As for my friend and I, considering it was a slightly impromptu trip, we had to craigslist tickets and paid a pretty penny for far back in the C section. I know that sometimes at the Greek being far back can make you feel removed from the show, but not on Wednesday. Everyone had great energy and was making friends with people around them as we all sang along.
