Stevie Wonder will host his annual House Full Of Toys benefit concert at Staples Center in Los Angeles on December 10. The legendary musician will perform two of his classic 1970s albums in full at the 21st edition of the charity event.

Wonder will lead his band through complete renditions of his 1972 landmark LP Talking Book and his equally impressive 1973 follow-up Innervisions. The former featured such Wonder hits as “You Are The Sunshine Of My Life” and “Superstition,” while the latter boasted such favorites as “Higher Ground” and “Living For The City.”

“Even though House Full of Toys will be celebrating 21 years, the joy of giving in the spirit of song will make this night such pleasured fun for the old and young,” said Wonder in a statement.

Wonder previously led complete performances of his 1976 album Songs In The Key Of Life at the 2013 and 2014 benefit concerts. The 2017 House Full Of Toys concert will feature musical director Rickey Minor and a number of additional performers who will be revealed at a later date. Tickets go on sale this Friday, October 27 via this link.
