It has been announced today that Motown genius Stevie Wonder will headline London’s British Summertime Hyde Park on Saturday 6 July 2019. Ticket details can be found on Gigwise below.

Wonder, real name Stevland Hardaway Morris, is undeniably one of the most influential musicians on the globe. The approach this man - who was signed to Motown aged ten, and has a net worth of 110 million dollars - has taken in his career has informed the way and many rock, pop, r&b, soul, and hip hop artist have made music ever since. This legend also is inspiring in terms of what someone devoting their whole life to music can achieve on stage. His decision to perform this upcoming Saturday night show is an honour for the capital.

Wonder, ever the merchant of joy, has said the following about his upcoming career-spanning hits gig:

"We’re living in a time where there’s so much is going on in the world. But the one thing that we know for sure that we can celebrate is life, love and music. I’m very thankful that you all have been so wonderful to me, giving me your life and allowing me to share my music with you since I was 11 years old, which was just a little ago. So, we’re just going to play and have fun."

As for the special guest, it's the mighty Lionel Richie. The chance to hear top hits 'All Night Long (All Night)', 'Can't Slow Down' and 'Endless Love' and then stay and see Stevie Wonder on the same stage minutes later is one of rare benefit.

Tickets to Stevie Wonder at Barclaycard's British Summer Time 2019 will be going on sale here at 9am on Friday 29 March.
