The Temptations Head to Capitol Center for the Arts this October
It'll be Motown magic when the legendary The Temptations appear at the Capitol Center for the Arts on Thursday, October 12, 2017 at 7:30PM.
For more than fifty years, The Temptations have prospered, propelling popular music with a series of smash hits, and sold-out performances throughout the world.
Their history is the history of contemporary American pop. An essential component of Berry Gordy's Motown machine, The Temptations began their musical life in Detroit in the early sixties. It wasn't until 1964 however, that the Smokey Robinson written-and-produced "The Way You Do the Things You Do" turned the men into superstars.
An avalanche of hits followed. Many of them - "My Girl," for instance- attained immortality. Other Temptations chart-toppers include "It's Growing," "Since I Lost My Baby," "Get Ready," "Ain't Too Proud to Beg," "Beauty Is only Skin Deep," and "I Wish It Would Rain."
The current lineup consists of Otis Williams, Ron Tyson, Terry Weeks, Larry Braggs, and Willie Greene Jr. "The more we change," says Tyson, "the more we stay true to ourselves. We're about singing straight-up soul. It's a style that will live on forever."
