Legendary singer-songwriter Stevie Wonder will bring his critically acclaimed "Songs in the Key of Life Performance" tour through the South this spring, with dates in three Texas cities.

The show is a live adaptation of Wonder's iconic 1976 Songs in the Key of Life album. Lone Star stops include a March 20 date at the Toyota Center in Houston, March 22 at American Airlines Center in Dallas and an Austin show on April 4 at the Frank Erwin Center.

The tour's initial run took place in fall 2014, debuting at Madison Square Garden before hitting Washington D.C., Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Atlanta and Seattle. Rolling Stone called it "possibly 2014's greatest testament to the limitless potential of American music itself," and Billboard observed that Wonder had the audience "roaring and standing on its feet."

Wonder's achievements are massive: 49 Top 40 singles, 32 No. 1 singles and worldwide album sales of more than 100 million units. He's received 25 Grammy Awards, an Oscar and a Golden Globe. He's an inductee into the Rock and Roll, Songwriters' and NAACP halls of fame, and he is the youngest recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors.

Wonder is also a designated U.N. Messenger of Peace with special focus on persons with disabilities. He continues to be pivotal in U.S. and world events, demonstrating the activism that has made him such a vital voice for social progress and world harmony.
