LOS ANGELES (August 17, 2015) – Legendary singer, songwriter, musician and producer Stevie Wonder announced today an extended and final run of dates for his SONGS IN THE KEY OF LIFE PERFORMANCE tour due to popular demand.
Wonder will bring the critically-acclaimed performance, which is a live adaptation of the iconic Songs in the Key of Life album, to 20 North American cities beginning September 30 in Montreal, QC. Produced by Wonder Productions and Live Nation and promoted by Live Nation, the tour will continue to cities such as Washington, DC, Philadelphia, St. Louis, Toronto, Chicago, Detroit and Kansas City before concluding in New York City at Madison Square Garden on November 24.
Citi® cardmembers will have access to pre-sale tickets beginning Tuesday, August 18 at 12:00 p.m. local time through Citi’s Private Pass® Program in select cities. For complete pre-sale details, visit http://www.citiprivatepass.com. General tickets for select cities will be available beginning Friday, August 21 at 10 a.m. local time. Please see below for full details.
These 20 dates follow the tour’s initial extended run of dates in March 2015; those dates were added as a result of high demand from the tour’s initial run in the late fall of 2014. While returning to many cities, many fans will have the chance to see the show for the first time in their area.
This leg will mark the final performances in a live tour setting in the U.S. The final show at Madison Square Garden will bring the tour full circle as Stevie concludes the tour at the same venue it began on November 6, 2014.
Rolling Stone declared that “the show is possibly 2014’s greatest testament to the limitless potential of American music itself,” while Billboard stated that “the music still resonates” and that Wonder provides an “electrifying concert… and had the audience roaring and standing on its feet.”
Throughout his career, the celebrated singer has amassed 49 Top 40 singles, 32 #1 singles and worldwide album sales of more than 100 million units. He has received 25 Grammy Awards, an Oscar, and a Golden Globe; is an inductee into the Rock and Roll, Songwriters’ and NAACP Halls of Fame; and is the youngest recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors. Stevie has received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and is a designated U.N. Messenger of Peace with special focus on persons with disabilities. He continues to be pivotal in U.S. and world events, demonstrating the activism that has made him such a vital voice for social progress and world harmony.
