Tickets will be available beginning Aug. 11. Ticket prices weren't immediately released.

Although Wonder has given numerous performances worldwide, his last full-scale tour in the U.S. was in 1995.

The Motown legend has some two dozen Grammy Awards and dozens of hits. His song "I Just Called to Say I Love You," featured in the movie "The Woman in Red," won the Academy Award for best original song in 1985.
