The Four Tops and The Temptations

A double-bill of Motown veterans. Few of the original members survive (with The Temptations alone having had at least 20 different members pass through their ranks over the years), but the songs -- from 'Get Ready' to 'Reach Out I'll Be There' -- most certainly do.

Motown legends The Four Tops and The Temptations announce a UK arena tour this year, stopping at The O2 on Tuesday 27 November 2018. They will be joined by special guests, yet to be announced. These two bands are true icons and epitomise the Motown sound that shook the world in the 60s and continues to delight audiences, old and new. The Four Tops have a vast catalogue of hits, with 27 UK top 40 singles, which include I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch) and the 1966 number one Reach Out (I’ll Be There). The line-up for the tour includes original member Duke Fakir plus Ronnie McNeir, Lawrence Payton and Harold ‘Spike’ Bonhart. The Temptations were the first Motown band to win a Grammy Award – and have won 3 in total. In 2013, they were honoured with the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award: a deserved tribute to a band that helped shape Soul and R&B music as we know it. Amongst their classics are My Girl and Papa Was a Rolling Stone. The line-up is founder member, Otis Williams, Ron Tyson, Terry Weeks, Larry Braggs and Willie Greene Jr.
