Just wonderful.

It had been 27 years since Stevie Wonder last performed in the Twin Cities, and reviews of the concert signal it was well worth the wait.

"Wonder proved to be as wonderful as one could possibly hope," the Star Tribune said in a review of the concert.

Wonder was presenting his 1976 Grammy winning album "Songs in the Key of Life," but the newspaper says he "delivered so much more, demonstrating his humor, personality, commitment to social issues and just how he works with musicians, including a 10-person string section of local players."

The Pioneer Press said, the 64-year-old Motown legend "radiated sheer joy, positivity and (non-denominational) spirituality to an adoring crowd of all ages and colors."

The newspaper added Wonder's song "Knocks Me Off My Feet" perfectly summarized his concert Sunday night at the Target Center.

Good news for anyone who missed Sunday night's concert – Wonder talked about coming back at Christmas time to play two shows, one that would raise money for needy children, the Star Tribune reports.

Before his concert, Wonder was spotted around Minneapolis, including leading the congregation in song at New Salem Missionary Baptist Church, and shopping for groceries at The Wedge.
