Stevie Wonder

3Arena, Tuesday 9th July 2019

The Stevie Wonder Song Party: A Celebration of Life, Love & Music, in concert at 3Arena July 9th, 2019.

Stevie Wonder is one of the most celebrated and prominent figures in popular music who, at the age of 12, was the youngest recording artist to have achieved a #1 single with Fingertips, Part 2. To date he has amassed 49 Top Forty singles, 32 #1 singles and worldwide sales of over 100 million units. Stevie has won 25 Grammy Awards, the prestigious Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, a Golden Globe and an Academy Award.

As an activist, Stevie also spearheaded the realisation of “Martin Luther King Day” as a national holiday in the USA. His participation in the We Are The World fundraiser for hunger in Africa was a music industry milestone while his involvement to put an end to apartheid in South Africa is legendary. He is the youngest recipient of the Kennedy Centre Honours, and is a Commander of France's National Order of Arts and Letters.

Stevie was awarded the Library of Congress' Gershwin Prize for Popular Song and performed his commission, Sketches Of A Life, which placed him in a very select group of eminent composers who have received library commissions, including Aaron Copeland, Leonard Bernstein and Paquito D'Rivera.

Stevie has received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and he is a designated UN Messenger of Peace with special focus on persons with disabilities. He continues to be a pivotal influence in US and world events, demonstrating the activism that has made him such a vital voice for social progress and world harmony.

The Workman's Club

Judah & the Lion live at The Workman's Club. For Judah & the Lion, the last two years should’ve been the best of their lives as the Nashville band toured behind a powerful single and a genre-upending album, sharing stages with heroes and playing to oceans of fans. But as everything was coming together for them, singer-guitarist Judah Akers' family was falling apart in a hail of alcoholism and affairs, death and divorce. From that tension comes Pep Talks, the trio's third LP and a hard left turn into deeply personal terrain.
