Stevie Wonder Announces Upcoming Surgery & Performance Hiatus


Iconic musician Stevie Wonder will take a hiatus from performing live after undergoing kidney transplant surgery in September. Wonder revealed the news following a performance of “Superstition” at London’s Hyde Park on Saturday nights as part of the British Summer Time concert series.

“I’m going to have surgery. I’m going to have a kidney transplant at the end of September this year,” Stevie told the crowd. “I’m all good, I’m all good, I’m all good. I have a donor, it’s all good. I came here to give you my love and to thank you for your love,” Wonder added. “You don’t have to hear no rumors about nothing, I told you what’s up … I’m good,” the 69-year-old musician said in response to reports he was having issues with his health.

Stevie Wonder has one more tour date ahead, as he will play 3Arena in Dublin on Tuesday night. Wonder presented a career-spanning set in Hyde Park that went heavy on the hits, including “Sir Duke,” “Living For The City,” “My Cherie Amour” and “You Are The Sunshine Of My Life.” Watch Stevie tell the crowd about his upcoming procedure:
