Andiamo Restaurants Presents The Temptations and The Righteous Brothers at Michigan Lottery Amphitheatre at Freedom Hill as part of the Fifth Third Bank Concert Series on Saturday, July 27 at 7:30 p.m.
The Temptations were born in Detroit in 1961, a marriage of members of the Distants and the Primes and signed to Motown. “Dream Come True” became the group’s first chart hit, peaking at #22 R&B in 1962. In 1965, “My Girl” became their first #1 pop and R&B hit, and their first signature song. They hit #1 R&B again with “Get Ready” in 1966. In 1972, “Papa was a Rollin’ Stone” hit #1 pop and won two Grammys®. In total, The Temptations have claimed 43 Top 10 R&B singles (14 #1) and 17 pop Top 10s (four #1). In 1989, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The Temptations’ new millennium success has included the Grammy®-winning Ear-Resistible (2000) as well as Awesome (2001) and Legacy (2004). Reflections, released in 2006, received a Grammy® nomination for their version of Marvin Gaye’s “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You).” Their latest album was 2010’s Still Here. Otis Williams, the only original member still living, continues to perform with The Temptations’ line up consisting of Terry Weeks, Ron Tyson, Larry Braggs and Willie Green.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame duo The Righteous Brothers topped the charts in four decades. Now, Bill Medley joins forces with one of the most versatile vocalists in America, Bucky Heard, to bring the Righteous Brothers back to the stage.
The Righteous Brothers concert experience features a string of their biggest #1 hits, including “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’” (the most played song in radio history), “Soul & Inspiration,” “Unchained Melody,” “Rock and Roll Heaven,” Medley’s Grammy-winning Dirty Dancing theme “The Time of My Life,” and much, much more.
