Stevie Wonder Announces ‘Songs In The Key Of Life’ Dates

Due to popular demand, Stevie Wonder is following his November/December outing celebrating his iconic 1976 double album with a “Songs In The Key Of Life Performance” tour set for spring.

Wonder has received 25 Grammy Awards, an Oscar and a Golden Globe. He’s also been inducted into the Rock and Roll, Songwriters’ and NAACP Halls of Fame, not to mention being the youngest recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors. The musician has put out more than 20 albums during his career – including 32 No. 1 singles – but his most iconic LP of all might just be Songs in the Key of Life.

The double LP won Grammys for Album of the Year, Best Male Pop Vocal Performance, Best Male R&B Vocal Performance and Producer of the Year. Tracks include “I Wish,” “Knocks Me Off My Feet,” “Isn’t She Lovely?” and “As.”

Rolling Stone praised last fall’s tour devoted to Songs in the Key of Life as “possibly 2014’s greatest testament to the limitless potential of American music itself.”
