Direct from the USA, The Magic of Motown comes to Bromley's Churchill Theatre tomorrow night (Friday).
The music of the Temptations, Diana Ross and The Supremes, the Four Tops, Stevie Wonder, the Jackson 5, Marvin Gaye, Lionel Richie, Martha Reeves, the Isley Brothers and scores more will be performed live on stage.
And producer Michael Taylor said: “It’s the best live Motown tribute concert show on tour.
“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, Lulu and Jane McDonald.
In 2010, The Magic of Motown completed its biggest UK tour yet, taking in 150 venues nationwide, including sell-out shows at London’s O2 Arena.
And, as the world celebrates more than 50 years of number one Motown hits, even more dates are scheduled for 2014.
Between 1961 and 1971 Motown Records celebrated 110 top 10 hits.
The Magic of Motown charts the label’s entire history, from this golden period in its history – to being heralded as the world’s greatest record label.
“Sadly, many of the original Motown legends are either no longer with us or no longer touring,” said Michael.
“The Magic of Motown is the nearest you’ll get to authentically capturing their incredible musical legacy in a live show.”
Tickets for the show, which starts at 8pm, cost between £27.40 and £42.40. To book, call the box office on 08448 717 620 or visit atgtickets.com.
