Stevie Wonder has added a final North American leg to his Songs in the Key of Life Performance tour, in which he is playing his classic 1976 double album in its entirety. Shows will include an Oct. 14 stop at the Prudential Center in Newark, as well as a tour-closing concert at Madison Square Garden in New York, Nov. 24.
Tickets to both shows, priced from $49.50 to $165, go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. via ticketmaster.com, with pre-sales for Citi card members beginning Tuesday at noon; visit citiprivatepass.com.
Songs from the album include “I Wish” and “Sir Duke” — both No. 1 hits – as well as “Isn’t She Lovely,” “Love’s in Need of Love Today,” “Pastime Paradise,” “Summer Soft,” “As” and “Ngiculela – Es Una Historia – I Am Singing.” At a Songs in the Key of Life Performance show I reviewed at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn in April, Wonder played all the songs from the double album, including the four songs of its bonus EP, plus a medley of other hits such as “Living for the City,” “Uptight (Everything’s Alright),” “I Just Called to Say I Love You” and “Superstition” as the encore. The show lasted three hours and 40 minutes, including a 25-minute intermission.
