Stevie Wonder Summerfest June 27 Tickets | Ticket King Inc.

Stevie Wonder Tickets
Stevie Wonder will be on tour in 2015, and playing his entire “Songs In The Key Of Life” album.
Wonder’s tour will include dates in April, and then more dates this summer. The Summerfest show date is set for June 27. Tickets for the Summerfest show are on sale as of this Saturday.

As most fans know, Stevie Wonder was a child prodigy, signed by Motown Records in the early 1960’s. That’s how he got the label “Little Stevie Wonder.” At that age, he needed help with songwriting, and production. He produced Tribute to Uncle Ray and The Jazz Soul of Little Stevie.   During his early teen years, he struggled with a voice that was changing. He also spent some time working in the background for Motown, writing songs for other artists. 

In 1968, Wonder’s popularity started to skyrocket. His co writer, Henry Cosby wrote songs such as My Cherie Amor, one song that became a hit when he reached the age of 20. In 1972, Stevie Wonder wrote “Superstition.” That song put Wonder back on the map.  Four years later, Songs in the Key of Life was released.  It was a massive effort on behalf of Wonder, and it was his crowning achievement. That double album will be the theme of the Summerfest show in June.

Kendrick Lamar Plays Summerfest 2015 | Ticket King Inc.

Summerfest announced another headline show for 2015. It will be Kendrick Lamar at the Marcus Amphitheater on July 1. Lamar released his third album just this past week.  It's titled "To Pimp a Butterfly." Kendrick won two Grammy's this past February, and has firmly established himself as one of the best rappers in the country. His style comes off as cool, calm, and focused.  Don't let that style fool you, Lamar himself claims that he's out to be the best.  So far, most people who see him perform agree with that notion. Opening for Lamar will be "SchoolboyQ."

From the start of his career, Kendrick Lamar had a focus. He felt that the current state of rap music was not good.  He felt that the most popular rappers had gone soft. Lamar wanted to get back to what he felt was the best part of rap, the crafting of words into amazing lines. He takes no prisoners when it comes to competing with other rappers.  It got so bad for those he went up against, that they soon left Lamar to work on his own. Nobody could compete at his level.  Soon enough, he was signed to a record label, TDE to be exact. That was when Lamar worked under the name of K-Dot.

In 2012, Lamar released "good kid, m.A.A.d city." Top Dawg entertainment pulled Lamar out of "indie label" obscurity, and Lamar was looking at a top 20 song on the rap charts by August of 2012.  In just six short months since the release, Lamar's album went gold.  Summerfest is happy to have Kendrick Lamar as one of their headline acts in 2015.
