*An investigation has been launched after University of Hawaii officials handed $200,000 to a talent agency to book Stevie Wonder for a gig next month.
A third-party concert promoter acting on behalf of UH wired the deposit to a company in Miami to hire the singer for a benefit show on Aug. 18. However, the event was called off when it was discovered that the event was planned without Wonder’s consent.
Officials at UH are now trying to recoup the funds and have contacted the FBI for assistance.
Refunds are being offered after 6,000 tickets were sold for the event.
