“Wonder Blunder” Promoter Sentenced 5 Years Over 2012 Stevie Wonder Concert That Never Happened

A man who lied to the University of Hawaii about his ability to get Stevie Wonder to play at a fundraiser concert was sentenced Friday to nearly five years in prison.

In an unexpected ruling, U.S. District Judge Leslie Kobayashi ordered that Marc Hubbard’s 57-month sentence run consecutively with more than six years he is serving for a similar case in Pennsylvania. A deal with prosecutors had called for his sentence to run concurrently with the Pennsylvania prison term where he pleaded guilty in a separate concert investment scam.

The university paid a $200,000 deposit in 2012 and began selling tickets before learning that neither Wonder nor his representatives authorized a show. A local businessman paid $50,000 of his own money to help finance the show that never happened, prosecutors said.
