Stevie Wonder announced as the final BST Hyde Park headliner

Iconic superstar Steve Wonder will bring The Stevie Wonder Song Party: A Celebration of Life, Love & Music to British Summer Time Hyde Park on Saturday 6th July 2019.

The announcement completes the line-up for this year’s BST Hyde Park and Wonder will be joined by Lionel Richie as his special guest.

James King, Senior Vice President, AEG Presents, comments: “There are headliners, great headliners, line ups, stellar lineups and a thousand other adjectives we use but we will never find the one that correctly describes what will be happening in Hyde Park on Saturday July 6th. Stevie Wonder is singing his biggest hits for his very own ‘Song Party’ and for good measure, and to our mutual amazement, joy and wonder, he is also bringing his good friend Lionel Richie. See you down the front.”

Daniel Mathieson, Head of Experiential Marketing and Partnerships for Barclaycard, says: “We are honoured to host not only the prestigious and iconic Stevie Wonder but also another special guest in the form of Lionel Richie this Summer. Stevie and Lionel have been part of the fabric of music and culture globally for the best part of six decades and between them have an incredible amount of accolades as testament to their phenomenally successful music careers. It’s ‘signed sealed and delivered’ – Saturday night couldn’t get any better.”

Wonder has achieved 49 Top Forty singles, 32 #1 singles and worldwide sales of over 100 million units. He has also won 25 Grammy Awards, the prestigious Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, a Golden Globe and an Academy Award.
