Two of Motown’s mightiest chart-busting male vocal groups, the TEMPTATIONS and the FOUR TOPS, are set to tour the UK in the New Year. The long-running Detroit legends – whos emusicla legacy is a deep and lasting one – have toured the UK together before, of course, but this time they are joined by another popular vintage soul group, TAVARES, who are billed as ‘special guests.’ They’ll join the Temptations and Four Tops for seven UK shows during October 2016 but won’t appear on the final night of the tour.
The Temptations’ longest-serving member, OTIS WILLIAMS, is looking forward to returning to England, where the group, along with the Four Tops, have a loyal fan base that goes back to the ’60s. “Very excited to be coming back to the UK October of 2016,” he says, “the UK audience has always been the best in world. Looking forward to spending time and performing for the greatest fans. See you later!” Echoing these sentiments is The Four Tops’ DUKE FAKIR who declares: “Our UK tour is always our most exciting tour of the year. I and the other Tops are looking forward to our fall visit in our favourite country. Hope to see you all at our concerts with our friends the Temptations and Tavares. Wow, I can’t wait!“
Special guests TAVARES are also excited by the prospect of stepping on British soil: “We are looking forward to the UK tour next October with the Temptations and The Four Tops and can’t wait to perform all of our hits for the UK fans who have always been so supportive throughout our career.“
