Stevie Wonder

Thu., Nov. 20, 6:30 p.m.
phone 248-377-0100

Let’s be honest here: if you need any semblance of an incentive to go see Stevie Wonder’s show at the Palace of Auburn Hills, then you’re not a fan of music. We could run down a list of his hits (excluding “So What’s the Fuss.” We love you, Stevie, but what the hell?), but we know that neither you nor we have that much time. Just come out to the Palace and see one of the greatest musicians of all time. $29.25 - $149.50
