Wonder has been performing the album live with his mega-band across North America for the last two years, all to rave reviews, performing long-sets to adoring crowds. He is also celebrating the album’s 40th anniversary this year. Originally released in 1976, Wonder’s classic Grammy Award winning album is truly one of the greatest albums ever recorded, featuring songs such as ‘Sir Duke‘, ‘I Wish‘, ‘Another Star‘, ‘As‘ and ‘Isn’t She Lovely‘. Even the leader of the free world President Obama can’t resist a bit of Stevie, and has on several occasions declared this album his favourite of all time.

This is surely to be the soul gig of the year, and we can’t wait until Stevie and his band bring London some classic Motown.
