The band was enormous... a string section, generous horn section, two sets of backup singers, various keyboard players, guitars, bass drums and percussionists. The show had some sound issues... vocals and keyboards too low in the mix, and overbearingly thumping bass. I am not sure why a major market like New York was chosen as the first performance, instead of working out the kinks in a smaller city. But none of that stopped the sold-out crowd from having a blast. I have never left a Stevie Wonder show without a smile and without unconsciously singing some of his tunes and this was no exception. India Arie escorted Stevie on Stage and shared some of the vocal chores, and did several other singers.
