Stevie Wonder has extended his Songs in the Key of Life Performance Tour, adding 20 new North American dates scheduled from September 30th (Montreal) to November 24th (New York City’s Madison Square Garden). The R&B-soul legend’s acclaimed jaunt features a full performance of his Grammy-winning 1976 double-LP, Songs in the Key of Life

A pre-sale for Citi card members will begin Tuesday, August 18th at noon local time through the company’s Private Pass Program in select cities. General tickets for select cities will be available starting Friday, August 21st at 10 a.m. local time. Full details are available at the Citi Private Pass website

Wonder’s new dates will close out his ongoing Key of Life jaunt. The performances were added as a result of high demand, following the initial 2014 fall tour and a March 2015 extension. 

Rolling Stone reviewed the tour’s opening date last November at Madison Square Garden. “After the last notes of album closer ‘Another Star,’ Wonder enthused, ‘Yes, we did it!’ in an exclamation that seemed equal parts celebration and relief,” we wrote. “He walked off during a horn-drenched, eight-minute version of ‘Superstition’ that devolved into the same whimsical spirit of the evening, the background singers dancing around and Whoopi Goldberg appearing on stage, a closer that was equal parts free-spirited, triumphant and huge. Fitting an album that attempted to capture the nuance of existence, the show is possibly 2014’s greatest testament to the limitless potential of American music itself.”
