DIRECT from the USA The Magic of Motown rolls into town on Sunday, June 12 for a concert in the Webster Memorial Theatre, Arbroath.
Live on stage it’s the music of the Temptations, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Four Tops, Stevie Wonder, Jackson 5, Marvin Gaye, Lionel Richie, Martha Reeves, Isley Brothers and scores more.
“It’s the best live Motown tribute concert show on tour,” says producer Michael Taylor.
“It’s not that it’s superbly-choreographed, it’s not the 36 million-selling hits, it’s not the dozens of dazzling costume changes featured that make it the UK’s busiest production on tour.
“It’s the fact that it faithfully reproduces that elusive Detroit sound.”
It’s a show that’s won the hearts of UK music fans, packing them in at giant festivals alongside Jools Holland, Lemar, Lulu and Jane McDonald.
Between 1961 and 1971 Motown Records recorded 110 top ten hits. The Magic of Motown charts the label’s entire history, from this golden period in its history and beyond. To being heralded as the world’s greatest record label.
