HYPE PARK, LONDON, England — Musician Stevie Wonder is taking a break from touring to undergo surgery for a kidney transplant.
According to TMZ he announced the news Saturday in England’s Hyde Park at a music festival.
He says he’ll be doing three more shows before taking his break.
He told the crowd he has already found a donor and will get the procedure done in September.
This comes after a Philadelphia radio personality claimed last month that Wonder was suffering from kidney failure and had begun dialysis.
