Stevie Wonder Tours 1976 'Songs in the Key of Life' Album with Stops in Manhattan, Seattle, Atlanta, Toronto
Stevie Wonder is set to hit the road again with his 1976 record Songs in the Key of Life. The tour includes an 11-date run at none other than large arenas from Manhattan to Seattle.
The tour of Songs in the Key of Life comes off of Wonder’s performance of the double album in it’s entirety at his 18th annual House Full of Toys Benefit Concert. Held on December 21 of last year at the Nokia Theatre in L.A.; the event featured all 21 of the records songs performed out of order.
Wonder also interspersed songs from A Something's Extra; the four-song 7-inch EP that accompanied special editions of the original LP that appears at the end of most CDs. A treat we can hope continues on tour.
"The only difference to the actual layout of Songs in the Key of Life is, as opposed to ending with the songs 'All Day Sucker' and 'My Mama's Call,' I'm going to end it with 'Another Star,' because I feel that song is the right one to do," Wonder said on last years performance. "Now, we're going to put the other two songs that were on the EP in the presentation as well, so they'll be probably the first two extra songs after the first part of Songs in the Key of Life, which are 'Saturn' and 'Ebony Eyes.'"
Tickets for most of the shows go on sale September 22 and you can find them here.
