LAS VEGAS—Legendary Motown vocal group The Temptations will bring their timeless classics and iconic moves to The Orleans Showroom on May 20-21.
The Temptations rose to fame in 1960 with harmonic vocals, flashy wardrobe and smooth dance moves that continue to win over fans today. The group signed with Motown Records in 1961 and began releasing chart-topping hits like “The Way You Do The Things You Do,” “Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me)” and their biggest hit, “My Girl.” The Temptations evolved their sound and style as they entered the early 1970’s. The group released more hits, including “Runaway Child, Running Wild,” “Cloud Nine” and #1 single “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone.”
In their nearly sixty-year career, The Temptations have achieved tremendous musical success. With 37 top-10 hits, 15 #1 singles, 17 #1 albums and tens of millions of albums sold, they became one of the most successful groups in music history. In 1989, The Temptations were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for their influential R&B and soul music. The group has also won seven Grammy Awards, including the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2013.
In commemoration of their 50th anniversary, The Temptations released their latest album “Still Here,” which debuted on the Billboard Top 200 Album list in 2010.
The group’s lineup features original member Otis Williams, along with Ron Tyson, Terry Weeks, Bruce Williamson and Joe Herndon.
