It’s a sentence that reads like a dream: Stevie Wonder is coming to KeyArena to perform Songs in the Key of Life in its entirety. Released in 1976, Wonder’s double-LP-with-an-EP-attached was extravagantly adored in its time—winning the Grammy for album of the year, topping the Pazz & Jop critics poll, and selling 10 million copies in the US—and will remain beloved as long as people have ears. Still, in my experience, such full-album showcases can be a mixed bag. Yes, you’re guaranteed to hear songs you love (no fear of “And now from my new album…”), but you also know exactly what’s going to happen (no surprises). Nevertheless, Stevie Wonder materializing in three dimensions to perform every single track on his ravishingly beautiful and complex Songs in the Key of Life is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and I can only imagine the explosion of goose bumps, tears, and perhaps even nether-juices that’ll greet the choral opening of “Love’s In Need of Love Today.” And that’s just the start.
