Stevie Wonder to tour U.S., Atlanta show on Sept. 14


Legendary performer Stevie Wonder has just announced his first tour in more than a decade, and it includes a 9/14 stop at Chastain Park Amphitheatre in Atlanta. Sweet. I had the pleasure of seeing Stevie perform at a political event a few years ago, but he hasn't toured since before I could drive. Here is the full tour schedule, courtesy of CNNMoney (seriously):

8/23 Humphrey's, San Diego, CA
8/25 Harvey's Lake Tahoe Amphitheature
8/26 Concord Pavillion, Concord, CA
8/28 Santa Barbara Bowl, Santa Barbara, CA
8/30 Edgefield Amph., Portland, OR
8/31 Chateau Saint Michelle Winery, Woodinville, WA
9/04 Mountain Winery, Saratoga, CA
9/05 Greek Theatre, Los Angeles, CA
9/10 Charter One Pavilion, Chicago, IL
9/12 Meadowbrook, Detroit, MI
9/14 Chastain Park Amph., Atlanta, GA
9/16 Pier Six Pavilion, Baltimore, MD
9/20 B of A Pavilion, Boston, MA

As a tease, here's a taste of live Stevie from more than three decades ago:

The show is from Brighton, UK, and if memory serves it was at the Rainbow Theater.

Re: bandwidth, I really only make a point of keeping things up for a week or so. That said, I think it will be ok again in a couple days when the new month starts.
