Motown supergroup The Temptations will bring their timeless hits and iconic moves to The Orleans Showroom on Oct. 28-29.

The Temptations hit the music scene in 1960, impressing fans with their harmonic vocals, flashy wardrobe and smooth dance moves. The group signed with Motown Records in 1961 and began releasing chart-topping hits like “The Way You Do the Things You Do,” “Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me)” and their biggest hit, “My Girl.” The Temptations evolved their sound and style as they entered the early 1970s, releasing the hits “Runaway Child, Running Wild,” “Cloud Nine” and No. 1 single “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone.”

In their nearly sixty-year career, The Temptations have achieved tremendous musical success.

In 1989, The Temptations were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame for their influential R&B and soul music. The group has also won seven Grammy Awards, including the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2013.

In commemoration of their 50th anniversary, The Temptations released their latest album “Still Here,” which debuted on the Billboard Top 200 Album list in 2010.

The group’s current lineup features original member Otis Williams, along with Billy Bannister, Terry Weeks, Ron Tyson, Larry Braggs and 5 Willie Greene.

Iconic Motown Group The Temptations Bring Timeless Hits to The Orleans Showroom September 19-20

Historic Motown group The Temptations return to The Orleans Showroom on Sept. 19 and 20 with members Otis Williams, Bruce Williamson, Terry Weeks, Ron Tyson and Joe Herndon.

Legendary Motown innovators The Temptations pioneered popular music, selling tens of millions of albums with more than 50 years of smash hits and sold-out performances. An essential component of Berry Gordy’s original Motown machine, The Temptations began their musical career in Detroit in the early ‘60s.  In 1964, they scored their first major hit with the Smokey Robinson-penned and produced “The Way You Do the Things You Do.”  A cavalcade of hits followed, including “My Girl,” “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.”

Beyond their extraordinary singing and distinct harmonies, The Temptations became known for their smooth choreography and distinctive look. “The Temptation Walk” became the staple of American style, flair, flash and class.

When the ‘60s and ‘70s turned political, The Temptations got serious. They changed their tone, dress and music with such hits as “Runaway Child,” “Cloud Nine,” “I Can’t Get Next To You,” “Papa Was a Rolling Stone” and “Psychedelic Shack.” The Temptations explosion continued in the ‘80s with their appearance on “Motown 25” in 1983, and into the ‘90s with an Emmy Award-winning NBC mini-series that chronicled the group’s early days and rise to fame.

To commemorate their 50th anniversary in 2010, The Temptations released the album “Still Here.” In 2012, the group performed on “Dancing with the Stars” as part of Motown Week. The group continues to tour the globe, entertaining fans everywhere with their harmonies, flair and unparalleled soul.

HUMAN NATURE SET FOR A NIGHT OF MOTOWN MAGIC AS LIVING LEGENDS COME TOGETHER TO TAKE IN SPECIAL PERFORMANCE

Music icons Mary Wilson, Otis Williams and Duke Fakir will attend the May 30 show

  

Human Nature is gearing up for a historic night of Motown magic as they prepare to perform for legendary artists Mary Wilson (The Supremes), Otis Williams (The Temptations) and Duke Fakir (The Four Tops). The musicians whose music inspired the Australian quartet’s Motown show will be in attendance Thursday, May 30 for Smokey Robinson Presents Human Nature: The Motown Show at The Venetian Las Vegas.

For one special night, audience members are invited to be seated among the Motown royalty who inspired Human Nature’s acclaimed show, produced by SPI Entertainment.

Formed in 1989 when brothers Andrew and Michael Tierney teamed up with schoolmates Toby Allen and Phil Burton to represent their local high school in a combined regional schools concert, Human Nature then called themselves The Four Trax, a nod to Duke Fakir’s The Four Tops.

After changing their name to Human Nature, the soulful singers went on to release nine albums, five of which went to #1 in their native continent, selling millions of records world-wide and garnering 23 platinum awards, 70 Top 40 hits and five Top 10 hits. Their chart-topping Motown tribute, Reach Out, went five-times-platinum, attracting the attention of famed songwriter Smokey Robinson, who recorded “Get Ready” with them and ultimately became a presenter of their Motown show in Las Vegas.

The group toured nationally in the U.S. in 2012, scored a #1 position on the Motown Charts and released their latest Motown CD and DVD following their PBS TV special in 2011.

Smokey Robinson Presents Human Nature: The Motown Show performs nightly Thursday – Monday (dark Tuesday, Wednesday) at 7p.m. Ticket prices are set at Reserved $59.95, Preferred $79.95 and VIP $99.95 (plus tax and handling fee – VIP ticket price also includes a commemorative CD). Tickets can be purchased at The Venetian Box Office, by visiting www.Venetian.com or by calling (702) 414-9000.
