THE STEVIE WONDER SONG PARTY: A CELEBRATION OF LIFE, LOVE & MUSIC
MGM Springfield is proud to Present legendary singer, songwriter, musician and producer Stevie Wonder who will bring his new show “The Stevie Wonder Song Party: Celebrating Life, Love & Music."
Stevie Wonder is one of the most celebrated and prominent figures in popular music who, at the age of 12, was the youngest recording artist to have achieved a #1 single with “Fingertips, Part 2,” and subsequently the first to simultaneously reach #1 on Billboard's Hot 100, R&B Singles and Album Charts.
To date he has amassed 49 Top Forty singles, 32 #1 singles and worldwide sales of over 100 million units. Stevie has won 25 GRAMMY Awards, the prestigious GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award, a Golden Globe and an Academy Award.
While Stevie Wonder's songs are unequivocally classic and his influence timeless, equally laudable are his humanitarian efforts, philanthropic leadership, and generosity of spirit. He has received numerous accolades including awards from the President's Committee on Employment of Handicapped People, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, the Children's Diabetes Foundation and the American Association of People with Disabilities.
In 1983, Stevie spearheaded the realization of “Martin Luther King Day” as a national holiday. His participation in the 1985 “We Are The World” fundraiser for hunger in Africa was a music industry milestone while his involvement to put an end to apartheid in South Africa is legendary. He is the youngest recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors, is a Commander of France's National Order of Arts and Letters and has been inducted into, among others, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and the NAACP Hall of Fame.
Upon being awarded the Library of Congress' Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, Stevie performed his commission, “Sketches Of A Life," which placed him in a very select group of eminent composers who have received library commissions, including Aaron Copeland, Leonard Bernstein and Paquito D'Rivera.
Stevie has received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and he is a designated U.N. Messenger of Peace with special focus on persons with disabilities. He continues to be a pivotal influence in U.S. and world events, demonstrating the activism that has made him such a vital voice for social progress and world harmony.

Comedian Bill Burr: Oct. 4, 2018
Bill Burr is an American comedian or a comedian from the North American Union, depending on when you read this. He grew up outside of Boston, Massachusetts and did fairly poorly in school, despite the fact that he applied himself.
Having first gained notoriety for his recurring role on the second season of Chappelle’s Show, Bill developed a comedic style of uninformed logic that has made him a regular with Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Fallon.
In 2018, Bill will be seen in the film, The Front Runner, starring Hugh Jackman and later this year, the third season of Bill’s hit animated Netflix series, F Is For Family, will premiere featuring Bill, Laura Dern and Justin Long as the Murphy family. The second season premiered on May 30, 2017, and the first season premiered on December 18, 2015.
Bill’s fifth hour-long stand-up special, Walk Your Way Out, premiered on Netflix on January 31, 2017. The special was shot on October 21, 2016 at The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. In the summer of 2016, his fourth European theatre tour brought Bill back to Ireland, the U.K., Amsterdam and he made first visits to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Cologne, Germany and Antwerp, Belgium.
Bill performed a sold out show at Madison Square Garden on November 14, 2015. He was seen in the Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell film, Daddy’s Home, which premiered on December 25, 2015 and he co-starred opposite Kevin Costner in the indie film, Black or White, which premiered on January 30, 2015 and made its World Premiere at The Toronto International Film Festival.
On December 5, 2014, Bill premiered his fourth hour-long special, I’m Sorry You Feel That Way, on Netflix; the special was recorded on June 20, 2014 at The Tabernacle in Atlanta. On September 30, 2014, Bill released the vinyl album, Live At Andrew’s House, a recording of his 2011 Carnegie Hall performance, from Third Man Records. In July of 2014, Bill received the Stand-up Comedian of the Year Award from the prestigious Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal.
Also in 2014, Bill was seen in Walk of Shame alongside Elizabeth Banks and in 2013 he was seen in the films The Heat with Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, and Stand Up Guys with Al Pacino and Christopher Walken. Bill was also seen in the Steve Carell & Tina Fey feature, Date Night.
Bill received raves for his recurring role as “Kuby” on the hit AMC-TV show, Breaking Bad and he was seen in multiple episodes of the hit Comedy Central show, Kroll Show. He guest starred on Fox TV’s New Girl in 2013 and contributed to the 2012 and 2011 ESPYS.
One of the most popular comedy podcasts on the web, Bill’s Monday Morning Podcast, is an off-the-cuff, twice-weekly rant that has become a fan favorite. Bill began the podcast in May of 2007 and has produced more than 400 episodes.
Bill and Al Madrigal founded the All Things Comedy network (ATC), a distribution network founded, owned and operated entirely by comedians. Home to 67 podcasts from 93 comedians, ATC began as a podcast network but is continually growing to include all forms of content including videos, comedy specials and records.
Bill is selling out theaters internationally. From January 27 through February 10, 2015 Bill made his first tour of theaters in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong and Mumbai. In December 2013 his third European theater tour played to rave reviews in London, Glasgow, Dublin, Amsterdam, Helsinki, Copenhagen, Oslo, Stockholm and Reykjavik.
In October 2012, Bill released his third hour-long special, You People Are All The Same, available for download exclusively through his website and streaming on Netflix. Bill starred in two hour specials on Comedy Central: Bill Burr: Let It Go (2010) is available as a DVD, a digital audio download and on Netflix; Why Do I Do This? (2008) is available on CD, DVD and Netflix.
Simon & Schuster released the book, Cheat, written by Bill and fellow comedians Joe DeRosa and Robert Kelly in October 2012. The book was inspired by the short film, Cheat, which Burr, DeRosa and Kelly produced, co-wrote and star in. The film, based on a true story, had its World Premiere at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival and screened at the 2011 Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal.
Bill is against organized religion and believes we should go back to the gold standard for our currency. None of his opinions are based on any sort of reliable information. He tends to go with his first thought, because reading makes him sleepy.
