The Temptations and The Four Tops will be performing some of their most popular and award-winning songs that continue to inspire musicians around the globe. The Tamla Motown label broke down cultural and social barriers and The Four Tops and The Temptations were at the very forefront of that transformative period. Original members, Duke Fakir and Otis Williams, of the Four Tops and Temptations respectively, hold a special place in the hearts of British fans, and they are both delighted to be returning to the UK for the eight date concert tour in October 2021.

“We are thrilled to be coming back to the UK,” says Duke Fakir. “We always have such a great reception from our fans here, it always feels like home. It makes it so special to perform for the folks in Britain.”

Otis Williams, founding member of the Temptations, adds, “We want to thank our fans in the UK for supporting and inspiring us over a half century. Our hearts go out to everyone who has been personally affected by the pandemic and we appreciate the healthcare workers, local communities and officials in Britain and around the world who are diligently working on the front lines. The health and safety of everybody is our highest priority. We’ve had such memorable trips to the UK, dating back to the 60’s, and can’t wait to see everyone later this year. Stay safe.”

I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch), Reach Out I’ll Be There, Standing In The Shadows Of Love, Bernadette, and Walk Away Renee are all timeless Four Tops’ classics that need little, or no, introduction and they enjoyed a revival of fortunes when Loco In Acapulco, from the film Buster, was a UK hit in 1988. Four Tops founder member Duke Fakir is joined by Ronnie McNeir, Lawrence Payton Jr and Joseph Alex Morris who is a truly fine vocalist with a commanding delivery in the current line-up.

Temptations’ blockbuster number one hits Just My Imagination, Papa Was A Rollin’ Stone, and My Girl are among the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll. The Temptations, throughout the group’s evolution, have produced fifty three Billboard Hot 100 Hit singles, including four that became number one pop singles. Otis Williams, the sole surviving original Temptation, Ron Tyson, a lead vocalist for thirty seven years, Terry Weeks, a lead vocalist for twenty three years, Willie Greene, Jr, base vocalist with the group for four years, and Mario Corbino, who joined the group this year, look forward to serenading fans with their soulful voices, lighting up the stage with their famous Temptations’ Walk, and bringing joy to audiences of all ages.
