If you’re interested in hearing some of Motown’s biggest hits on Broadway, you could see the Berry Gordy biographical musical “Motown: The Musical.” Or, for a limited time, you could hear them from the actual groups who made some of the genre's biggest hits.
The Temptations and The Four Tops will play a very limited engagement on Broadway this holiday season.
For seven performances only from Dec. 29 to Jan. 4 the legendary Motown artists and Rock and Roll Hall of Famers will take over the Palace Theater, bringing with them 50 years of classic hits.
Billed as “a career retrospective as well as a celebration of the hit songs that defined a generation,” the Broadway concerts will be packed with many of the 59 Top 40 hits the two groups have between them.
Some of those songs include "My Girl,” “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone,” “Reach Out I’ll Be There,” “Get Ready,” “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg” and “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch).”
It’s like one of those Time Life box sets, only live and in person.
Tickets range in price from $52 to $142 and will go on sale to the general public on Nov. 14 at Ticketmaster.com.
And don’t worry — there’s no New Year’s Eve performance, so you won’t have to brave the Times Square crowds gathered to watch the ball drop.
