Motown legend Stevie Wonder will launch a special 10-city tour, the “Songs in the Key of Life Performance” this fall, with a stop Nov. 20 at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

Tickets for the Palace show go on sale at 10 a.m. Sept. 22 at

For this tour, Wonder will perform special “live adaptations” of one of his most successful albums, 1976’s “Songs in the Key of Live,” starting in New York at Madison Square Garden on Nov. 6, and winding up in Oakland, Calif. on Dec. 5. That album, which captured Wonder at the height of his ’70s golden era, won the Grammy for “Album of the Year,” one of the 25 Grammys Wonder has earned, and yielded the singles “Sir Duke,” “As” and “I Wish.”

There will be a special deal for Citi cardmembers, who will be able to purchase pre-sale tickets starting at 10 a.m. Tuesday. Go to for information.
