LOS ANGELES, Calif. (August 3, 2007) — Stevie Wonder said Thursday that he will hold his first U.S. tour in more than a decade, beginning next month in San Diego.

“A Wonder Summer’s Night” will include 13 concerts from Aug. 23 to Sept. 20 in eight states. Stops in California will include San Diego, Lake Tahoe, Concord, Santa Barbara, Saratoga and Los Angeles. Other cities include Portland, Ore.; Woodinville, Wash.; Chicago; Detroit; Atlanta and Baltimore. The final concert will be in Boston.

Tickets will be available beginning Aug. 11. Ticket prices were not immediately released.

Although the 57-year-old has given numerous performances worldwide, Wonder’s last full-scale tour in the United States was in 1995.

The Motown legend has won some two dozen Grammys and had dozens of hits. His song “I Just Called to Say I Loved You,” used in the movie “The Woman in Red,” won the Academy Award for best original song in 1985.
