Concert promoters revealed they have signed, sealed and delivered a deal to bring soul star Stevie Wonder to Ireland this summer.
The singer-songwriter will bring his massive back catalogue of hits to Dublin in June as part of a major European tour.
Wonder, who has racked up 32 number-one singles and 25 Grammy awards, said he was gearing up for some memorable shows.
"I am looking forward to performing in these venues in Europe," the Superstition star said.
"We are going to have some wonderful nights."
The 59-year-old, best known for classics including Isn't She Lovely and For Once In My Life, will perform at the capital's 02.
Blind from birth, Wonder began his career as a Motown child prodigy and went on to release 49 top 40 singles.
He scooped an Academy Award for Best Song for the 1984 hit I Just Called To Say I Love You.
The new dates come after the singer's sold-out Wonder Summer's Night tour of Europe in 2008.
Tickets for the June 24 Dublin gig go on sale from 9am next Thursday.
