Stevie WonderStevie Wonder launched his tour, where he will perform his classic album Songs in the Key of Life in its entirety, last night at Madison Square Garden. Normally, one of these album tours, which have become popular in the last decade, would include a playing of an album surrounded by all of the other hits of the artist but Songs in the Key of Life is an exception to that rule. When the double-LP was released in 1976, it not only took up four album sides but also an additional seven-inch single that contained four more songs. That’s a lot of music to fit into an evening and Wonder kept the show to just the album plus a closer of his hit Superstition.
It’s OK, though. Songs in the Key of Life is filled with so many well known songs that it sounds like a hits concert all on its own. Singles from the album included Sir Duke, I Wish, As and Another Star while album cuts, such as Isn’t She Lovely, Love’s In Need of Love Today, Pastime Paradise and If It’s Magic, will have the audience singing along most of the evening.
Wonder is touring with an orchestra conducted by Greg Phillinganes.
