Thursday To-Do: The Four Tops / The Temptations

Posted By on Thu, Oct 9, 2008 at 2:36 PM


8 p.m., Reynolds Performance Hall, UCA, Conway. $50.

For those who're truly nostalgic to see a Motown double bill of this magnitude, there quickly comes a pang of doubt. There's no way these are the Four Tops and the Temptations? Groups who reigned supreme on the charts in the '60s and helped define the Motown sound with songs like “The Way You Do the Things You Do,” “My Girl” and “Reach Out I'll Be There”? Sure they are. Or at least as real as you'll ever see. Only one original Four Top remains active in the group, tenor Duke Fakhir (one other, Levi Stubbs, is retired). Ditto for the Temptations, who only retain baritone Otis Williams. But these are still soul vets, who've spent years dressing in matching suits, snapping their fingers, twirling in unison and harmonizing sweetly. Here's betting it'll be a nostalgia fix at least.
