Stevie Wonder finally performing in Hawaii -- for a private show

It's no blunder: Stevie Wonder is slated to perform a private concert Saturday night in Waikiki.

The acclaimed singer-songwriter will perform for an Oracle Corp. audience at Ainahau Triangle at Fort DeRussy, according to longtime concert promoter Tom Moffatt.

By sundown today, a large stage, along with a tent, booths and scaffolding, had already been erected at the Fort DeRussy concert site. 

A sound check blared country music over a speaker system and lights set up above and around the stage bathed the area in color.

Oracle CEO Larry Ellison purchased the island of Lanai last year from Castle & Cooke.

Wonder's Waikiki concert comes more than a year after the so-called "Wonder Blunder," when the University of Hawaii was scammed out of $200,000 in a bogus Wonder benefit concert.

The debacle shook public confidence in UH leadership, and led to the ouster of then athletic director Jim Donovan.
