If you missed Stevie Wonder’s Songs in the Key of Life tour last year, you’re in luck. The legendary R&B artist has announced another 11-date run this Spring that will span the U.S.
Similar to last year’s trek, each night will include a performance of Wonder’s 1976 album in its entirety. “Truly, I wanted to do this for years,” Wonder revealed to Rolling Stone, saying he had planned it for nearly a decade. “The album has just inspired me. When I listen to my music, I listen to really see if I still feel the same way. When I listen to Songs in the Key of Life or Talking Book or Innervisions or any of the things I’ve done in the past, I listen to measure how I feel and how I see the world…and it gives me a lot of optimism.”
Groove guru Nate Watts, who played on the original album, will once again be laying down bass for the tour. The album acts as an education on perfect bass lines with songs including “Sir Duke,” “I Wish,” “Isn’t She Lovely,” “As,” and more.
