Stevie Wonder is coming to several cities this fall with the Songs in the Key of Life Performance Tour. Wonder announced his tour during a press conference Wednesday at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. The long-awaited tour will kick off Nov. 6 at New York's Madison Square Garden and conclude on Dec. 5 at Oakland, Calif.'s Oracle Arena.
The last time Wonder re-created music from Songs in the Key of Life was last year when he performed during his 18th annual House Full of Toys holiday-benefit concert at the Nokia Theatre at L.A. Live.
Early-bird ticket sales will be available to Citi cardholders Sept. 16 through Citi’s Private Pass program. Regular ticket sales will be sold via LiveNation on Sept. 22.
In an interview with the Associated Press, Wonder said he also hopes to release singles from his next album, Through the Eyes of Wonder, in February. The multi-Grammy winner stated that his new album was inspired by world news.
"Obviously the good, the bad and the ugly, I've seen it all. I check out all of it," he said. "I am always challenged [by] anything that's negative to write something like … how can we take it from that wrong place to getting it back to the right place?
"Unfortunately we're living in a time of disposable love, and we've got to get it from that place to really valuing life, valuing love and valuing each other."
