Stevie Wonder Extends 2015 U.S. Tour Dates -- Minneapolis in March

itemprop
The timeless talent of Stevie Wonder -- the voice, the harmonica, the keys, and the energy -- is spreading the joy to more of the U.S. later this year. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has extended his run of dates centered on his 1976 touchstone, Songs in the Key of Life. The album yielded "Sir Duke," "Isn't She Lovely," and became one of the most influential recordings of its era, or ever.

This current string of concerts touches down in the Twin Cities in March. This is Wonder's first show in the area since 1988's RiverFest in St. Paul. Dates below.

The 64-year-old Wonder snares more awards for his artistry and charity work every year, and has remained a pop culture fixture. He performed "Get Lucky" with Daft Punk and Pharrell Williams at the 2014 Grammy Awards ceremony, and his contributions and influence can be heard on Mark Ronson's Uptown Special, which is already an early frontrunner for 2015's best album.

Rolling Stone's recap of the tour opener in New York gives a hint at how good this show has been so far: "The show is possibly 2014's greatest testament to the limitless potential of American music itself."
