Stevie will take the stage July 6 in London’s famed Hyde Park, as part of the year’s British Summer Time Festival. In an Instagram announcement, he says, “I wanna personally invite you to my party. It’s the Stevie Wonder Song Party, celebrating life, love and music.”

As previously reported, Lionel Richie will launch his Hello tour in May, while Stevie will be playing a benefit concert June 24 at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO.
