steviewonder 092409 Stevie Wonder At Bonnaroo[lastfm]Stevie Wonder[/lastfm] was one of the highlights at the Bonnaroo music festival this weekend. The “Superstition” singer gave a nearly two-hour-long set Saturday night, which included tunes like “Uptight (Everything’s Alright),” “For Once in My Life,” “Sir Duke” and a slower version of his hit “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours.”

Wonder also included some covers. He performed renditions of [lastfm]Parliament[/lastfm]‘s “Give Up the Funk (Tear the Roof Off the Sucker)” and “Heard It Through the Grapevine.” He also led the audience in singing part of [lastfm]John Lennon[/lastfm]‘s “Give Peace a Chance.”

Wonder also gave the audience a brief political speech. While getting ready to perform his 1973 song “Living for the City,” Wonder said, “We can never let no one ever get us back to a place like this again. Never. No Tea Party — I don’t care. You want to be a supremacist? Then be the supreme of getting people together.”
