With successful careers spanning more than five decades, The Temptations and The Four Tops continue to propel popular music with a series of smash hits and sold-out performances across the world. As essential components of the dynamic Motown machine, both groups are responsible for some of music’s most beloved and memorable songs including “My Girl,” “I Can’t Help Myself,” “Just My Imagination (Running Away with Me),” “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg,” “Reach Out I’ll Be There,” “Ain’t No Woman Like the One I’ve Got,” “It’s the Same Old Song” “Papa was a Rollin’ Stone,” and countless others. The groups will perform these popular melodies among other greatest hits during their concert at the Palace.
The history of The Temptations is the history of contemporary American pop. Beyond their fabulous singing and avalanche of Motown hits, The Temps became known for smooth stepping, flawless presentations and the signature “Temptations Walk,” which became a staple of American style, flair, flash and class. Over the course of their legendary career, they has amassed three Grammy Awards, four Billboard Hot 100 number-one singles and fourteen R&B number-one singles. The group’s current lineup stars Otis Williams, Ron Tyson, Terry Weeks, Joe Herndon, and Bruce Williamson.
Known as the “Grand Gentlemen of Rock and Roll,” The Four Tops were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1990, and became the proud recipients of a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2009, after earning twenty-four Top 40 hits throughout their illustrious career. Their songs, soulful and bittersweet, were across-the-board successes that helped define Detroit’s signature Motown Sound in the 1960s. The group’s current lineup stars original member Abdul "Duke" Fakir, Roquel Payton, Ronnie McNeir and Harold “Spike” Bonhart.
