Published Sep 10, 2014Stevie Wonder's '70s output gave up an impressive number of soul and funk classics, with the double-LP Songs in the Key of Life being of many masterstrokes. As such, the legendary artist will be saluting his epic 1976 effort in full on an upcoming North American tour called simply "Songs in the Key of Life Performance."
This won't be the first time he's treated the album this way in recent times, having brought out the song cycle at a benefit concert in Los Angeles last year. This round of celebratory dates, meanwhile, hits arenas this coming November. On the docket is one Canadian date at Toronto's Air Canada Centre on November 25.
You'll find all of the details down below. General tickets for select cities will be available beginning September 22 at 10 a.m. local time.
Beyond the upcoming retro tour, Wonder had told Rolling Stone last year that he was working on an album called When the World Began with producer David Foster. It's unclear if a street date will be served up any time soon, but it was explained at the time that the set will contain symphony assisted redos of hits like Songs in the Key of Life classic "Isn't She Lovely," as well as new tunes.
Wonder's last album release was 2005's A Time to Love.
