There really isn’t much more to add than what I said in the piece. One of the world’s premier geniuses playing at one of the world’s premier venues. If you couldn’t find at least some sort of minor transcendence, you clearly weren’t looking hard enough. As I said, in the first draft, had they re-tried the Scopes evolution case in 2008,  the creationist argument would best be bolstered by a trip to see Stevie Wonder sing at the Hollywood Bowl on a perfect summer night. All the classics were accounted for. “Superstition,” “Signed, Sealed & Delivered,” “Livin’ in the City,” etc. You can imagine.

Unrelated fun fact of the day: Stevie Wonder’s real name is Stevland Hardaway Judkins.
