Legendary singer Stevie Wonder has announced that he will be taking a break from music to focus on his health and will be having surgery in September.

He made this announcement during a concert in London at Hyde park where he said he’d be having a kidney transplant.

“So what’s gonna happen is this, I’m going to have surgery, I’m going to have a kidney transplant in September of this year. I’m all good, I’m all good, I’m all good. I have a donor, it’s all good,” Wonder said. “I want you to know I came here to give you my love and to thank you for your love. You ain’t gotta hear no rumors about nothing, I told you what’s up. I’m good. All right?”

Stevie Wonder, 69, has been one of the most prolific and iconic singers in the modern era learning to play piano, drums and harmonica by age 9 and going on to win 25 Grammy Awards, an honorary award and has been nominated 74 times.

While the news of Stevie Wonder and his kidney issues are saddening, there was also the issue of the sound at his latest concert. Several concert goers were upset by the fact that the sound for his concert at Hyde Park was so bad.

They flocked to Twitter to talk about this.

One follower said: “Worst gig ever. Stevie Wonder at we left early as sound totally rubbish. Sort it out please feeling angry and totally ripped off. Never again”

Another tweeted: “Sound engineers need to look for a new job. Sound quality is shocking. Completely ruined Stevie Wonder set. So disappointed”

One even went as far as saying it was the worst concert he had ever attended: “what the hell is happening? Why the hell are we listening to a DJ playing songs from his laptop whilst Stevie Wonder is sitting at his piano not having a clue what is going on! The sound is awful – possibly the worst concert have ever been to!”
