    The Legends of R&B: Classic Concert

    Presented by AEG Live at Boutwell Municipal Auditorium

    October 26, 2012


    The Legends of R&B: Classic Concert

    Listen to The Temptations featuring Dennis Edwards, The Manhattans featuring Gerald Alston and Blue Lovett, and special guest Lenny Williams in what is sure to be a wonderful night of classic R&B!

    The Temptations are an American vocal group known for their success in the 60s and 70s at Motown Records. The group's repertoire has included, during its five-decade career, R&B, doo-wop, funk, disco, soul, and adult contemporary music. Known for their recognizable choreography, distinct harmonies, and flashy onstage suits, the Temptations have been said to be as influential to soul as The Beatles are to pop and rock. Formed in Detroit, Michigan, in 1960 as The Elgins (not to be confused with another Motown group with the same name), the Temptations have always featured at least five male vocalists/dancers. Having sold tens of millions of albums, the Temptations are one of the most successful groups in music history. As of 2010, the Temptations continue to perform and record for Universal Records with its one living original member, Otis Williams, still in its lineup.

    The Manhattans featuring Gerald Alston & Blue Lovett, along with Troy May & David Tyson bring stellar legacy to the stage. With all time hits such as "Kiss and Say Goodbye" and "Shining Star" along with numerous other hits, there is no doubt that The Manhattans are here to stay!
