Temptations and The Four Tops

Two quintessential Motown vocal groups—both members of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame—on one bill.
Relive the 60s with dozens of hits by these two acts, the combined repertoire from which these acts can choose is nothing short of staggering.
The Temptations hits include “Just My Imagination (Running Away with Me),” “My Girl,” “The Way You Do the Things You Do,” “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg,” “Papa Was a Rolling Stone,” “Treat Her Like a Lady,” “(I Know) I’m Losing You,” and “For Your Love,” among others.
The Four Tops can choose from “Walk Away Renee,” “Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch),” “Reach Out, I’ll Be There,” “Bernadette,” “Baby I Need Your Lovin’,” “It’s The Same Old Song,” and “Shake Me, Wake Me.”
Back in the day, Temps and Tops were rivals at Motown Records, and each did their utmost to create the bigger hits and the hottest stage shows. Today, albeit with some understudies taking on various vocal assignments, the groups are still making the most of essential songs from the Baby Boom soundtrack. As reported in the New York Times, “Some of the members’ gold-lamé jackets (are) a few sizes larger than they were decades ago, but their voices are strong and their choreography taut and precise, with bits of stage business in every song and moves that some fans first saw on black-and-white TV.”
