Travelling to venues throughout Canada and the United States,

the concert is a three-hour long celebration in which Mr.  Wonder

sings every song from the double LP multiple award winner.

Last evening, 29 October 2015,

the Pittsburgh audience, attending at the Consol Energy Centre, enjoyed

this show of a life time:  Stevie Wonder performing songs from an album

which many consider his greatest musical achievement

and one of the greatest albums of all time.

The album features the song

Sir Duke

a personal favourite, with the lyrics which comments on

music as a “language we all understand“.

So true.
