Twenty-two time Grammy Award-winning artist Stevie Wonder comes to Stateline this Friday, Sept. 2, playing Harveys Outdoor Arena for the final installment of the 2016 Summer Concert Series.
“He broadened his vision from pure pop to the socially conscious. He began exploring exotic musical ideas incorporating gospel, rock, jazz, reggae, and African and Latin American rhythms, and pioneered the use of synthesizers,” states the artist’s Facebook biography.
Known for his ability to dip into multiple genres with hits such as “Superstition,” “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours” and “Isn’t She Lovely,” Wonder has notched 20 top-five singles, 28 top-10 singles and was the youngest solo artist to top the Hot 100 at age 13.
“Playing harmonica, drums and keyboards, as well as singing, the boy who had been blind from infancy proved aptly named,” according to the biography.
“The ‘90s and the new millennium were marked by collaborations with artists as diverse as Prince and Sting, Babyface and Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg and Andrea Bocelli, Sting and Tony Bennett, and projects as varied as the Broadway musical Rent and Spike Lee’s film Jungle Fever.”
The concert begins at 7 p.m. Harveys Outdoor Arena is located at Highway 50 Stateline Avenue.
Tickets start at $99.50 plus tax and fees.
