Delta Event Center Tickets from $75
Revered for their phenomenal catalog of music and a prolific career, The Temptations, take to the Delta Event Center stage live on Saturday, March 14.
Named the “#1 R&B/Hip Hop Artists of All Time” and one of the “125 Greatest of All Time Artists” by Billboard Magazine, as well as one of the “100 Greatest Artists of All Time” by Rolling Stone Magazine, the group’s 60-year history spans both the 20th and 21st centuries and their music transcends generations.
What began in Detroit when a remarkable combination of soulful voices, was the genesis of an epic journey that introduced multiple superstars to the world and produced some of the greatest music of our era.
When the legendary “Classic Five,” (Otis Williams, Melvin Franklin, Eddie Kendricks, Paul Williams and David Ruffin) released the single, The Way You Do The Things You Do in 1964, it marked the beginning of a multitude of award-winning and chart-topping songs and albums that would be embraced by popular music audiences globally. It was on March 6, 1965 that their first million copy bestselling single, My Girl hit #1 on Billboard’s Pop chart.
The Temptations have produced 53 Billboard Hot 100 Hit singles, including #1 Pop singles: I Can’t Get Next To You, Just My Imagination and Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone.
Additionally, they released 43 Top 10 R&B hit singles, 14 of which were #1 R&B hits, including timeless classics such as Ain’t Too Proud to Beg, Beauty Is Only Skin Deep, I Wish It Would Rain, and songs influenced by their funk/psychedelic soul sound including Happy People, and Shakey Ground. The group also has 16 #1 R&B Albums.
Otis Williams, the sole surviving original Temptation, Ron Tyson, a lead vocalist with the group for 37 years, Terry Weeks, a lead vocalist for 23 years, and Willie Greene, Jr., base vocalist with the group for four years, are still serenading fans with their soulful voices, lighting up stages with their famous Temptations’ Walk and bringing joy to audiences of all ages.
