Stevie Wonder to release first-ever Live DVD


MUMBAI: On the 50th Anniversary celebration of Motown Records, American legend Stevie Wonder has released his first-ever live concert DVD called Live At Last.

The announcement was made by Universal Motown Records.

The DVD program, which will be released worldwide on 9 March, 2009, was filmed at the O2 Arena, in London, from 30 September to 1 October, 2008, before an audience of 15,000 each night. The concerts were part of the first Stevie Wonder world tour in over a decade, which sold 120,000 tickets in the UK alone.

Live At Last set list traces a lifetime of innovation and accomplishment – stretching from Wonder’s teens with My Cherie Amour and Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours. Along the way, the program encompasses hits that redefined pop and R&B music, including Superstition, Higher Ground, Living For the City, You Are the Sunshine of My Life and I Wish, while reaching into his classic albums such as All I Do, Overjoyed and Knocks Me Off My Feet amongst others.

Wonder also takes time out in the set to salute the British audience with an affectionate medley of two Beatles songs (Fool on the Hill, I Want To Hold Your Hand) and a Rolling Stones classic (Can’t Get No Satisfaction), book-ending them with the traditional London Bridge is Falling Down.

Aside from being his first DVD release, Live At Last is Wonder’s first high definition release on Blu-Ray disc.
