Stevie Wonder 2014 Tour Dates Playing 1976 Record 'Songs in the Key of Life' In Full
Stevie Wonder has announced that he will be doing an 11-city arena playing his hits 1976 album Songs in the Key of Life in full.
In December 2013, the iconic singer-songwriter played all of the record's 21 songs for the first time ever at his annual House Full of Toys benefit concert in Los Angeles. He didn't play the songs in the exact order and also played 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.
Wonder shared about the concert with Rolling Stone, "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," he said. "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.'"
Now, Stevie revealed during a press concert on Wednesday (Sept 10) from Grammy Musuem in LA that will take that special experience to his fans this fall. The tour will kick off on November 6th in New York and run til December 5th in Oakland, CA. You can check out all of the tour dates below. Tickets for most shows go on sale September 22nd.
