MOTOWN all-time greats The Four Tops and The Temptations are back with special guests to the Motorpoint Arena Sheffield on Friday, March 16.

And to celebrate we have TEN tickets to give away.

The two legendary bands will be joined by 70s disco sensation Tavares and sixties girl band The Crystals.

With Soul and R&B enjoying a dazzling comeback, the show - for all the family - promises to get three or four generations together, shaking their hips and singing along to truly irresistible classics.

It will showcase some of the greatest hits of the past five decades including Reach Out (I’ll Be There) and It’s All In The Game from the Four Tops, My Girl and Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone from The Temptations, Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel and More Than A Woman from Tavares, Da Doo Ron Ron and Then He Kissed Me from The Crystals.

The Four Tops, originally from Detroit, Michigan, moved to LA in the early 70s and continued playing with no change in their line up until 1997, when Lawrence Payton passed away. The current line up includes original founder member Abdul ‘Duke’ Fakir.

Also from Detroit were The Temptations. Founder and original member Otis Williams is still in the band.

The Tavares brothers are one of the most successful R & B, funk and soul chart-hit bands ever. Their More Than a Woman, for Saturday Night Fever, won a Grammy Award.

Sixties girl group The Crystals are considered one of the defining female acts of their time. He’s a Rebel, written by Gene Pitney and produced by Phil Spector, best represents Spector’s girl group sound.
