Stevie Wonder's tour is going to pause shortly after his Dublin gig this coming Tuesday.
The music legend made the announcement at last night's London gig, where he addressed the audience from the stage that he was taking a break in order to receive a kidney transplant. "I’m all good, I’m all good, all good," Wonder said, reassuring the audience. "I have a donor, and it's all good."
The transplant is set to take place in September, and that his gig in Dublin will go ahead along with two more shows in the US.
Wonder - real name Stevland Hardaway Morris - was most likely responding to recent rumours about his health, and acknowledged them in his speech last night.
Tuesday night's gig in 3Arena is still scheduled to go ahead.
