The Temptations to bring timeless classics to The Orleans

16 August 2016

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The Temptations, one of Motown's most successful and celebrated groups, will return to The Orleans Showroom Oct. 1 and 2.

For the last 55 years, the group has pioneered popular music, selling tens of millions of albums with smash hits and sold-out performances. An essential component of Berry Gordy's original Motown machine, The Temptations began their musical career in Detroit in the early 1960s. In 1964, they scored their first major hit with the Smokey Robinson-penned and produced "The Way You Do the Things You Do." Their hits continued with "My Girl," "Get Ready," "It's Growing," "Since I Lost My Baby," "Beauty Is Only Skin Deep," "Ain't Too Proud to Beg" and "I Wish It Would Rain."

The Temptations' sound, dress and tone evolved with the signs into the early '70s, with hits like "Runaway Child," "Cloud Nine," "I Can't Get Next To You," "Papa Was a Rolling Stone" and "Psychedelic Shack." Their popularity continued into the 1980s with their appearance on "Motown 25" in 1983, and into the '90s with an Emmy Award-winning NBC miniseries that chronicled the group's early days and rise to fame.

To commemorate their 50th anniversary in 2010, The Temptations released the album "Still Here." In 2012, the group performed on "Dancing with the Stars" as part of Motown Week. The group continues to tour the globe, entertaining fans everywhere with their iconic harmonies, extraordinary flair and timeless soul.

The Temptations consist of Otis Williams, Ron Tyson, Terry Weeks, Larry Braggs and Willie Greene Jr.

Showtime is 8 p.m. Tickets are available starting from $39.95, plus tax and convenience fees. Tickets can be purchased at any Boyd Gaming Box Office, by calling 702.284.7777 or visiting The Orleans' website.
