Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the Magic of Motown REACH OUT® 2016 Tour is coming to townStuart | YLF
Music fans are invited to join the party as hit touring concert show the Magic of Motown celebrates its 10th birthday with a tour of the UK and Ireland.
Set to thrill its millionth music fan this year, the production’s 2016 show honours the 50th anniversary of the Four Tops’ chart-topping single Reach Out, I’ll Be There with its all-new REACH OUT® Tour.
In 1966, The Four Tops’ signature tune was a No1 hit both sides of the Atlantic, says Magic of Motown’s UK-based producer Michael Taylor.
“The song Reach Out enjoys the distinction of being acclaimed as this stunning production’s stand-out performance,” he says.
“Magic of Motown has spent the past decade continuing the legend of solid-gold artistes like the Supremes, Temptations, Jackson 5, Isley Brothers, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, Lionel Richie and more.”
Michael says that the production oozes the style, sophistication and musical brilliance of these legendary artists. “Thirty-six classic songs are revived,” he says, “amid a flurry of glittering costume changes and starring all the dazzling dance moves and superb musicianship of the original artistes.”
The Magic of Motown has racked up more than 1,500 performances over 10 years. From Inverness to Jersey and all points in between, it has played to packed houses at the majority of Britain’s biggest theatres and concert halls. And it’s reputation has spread overseas with tours of the Netherlands, Denmark, the Czech Republic, France, Ireland and Algeria to its credit.
With its American born-and-bred male lead, Andre Lejaune, the Magic of Motown promises five-star performances that will authentically revive the style and sophistication of everyone’s favourite musical legends.
The performers, especially put together for the 2016 tour, are backed by the long-established Magic of Motown band who, according to Michael, create the elusive, authentic Motown sound.
“In the capable hands of the cast and the musicians,” says Michael, “you can guarantee that the score will be – with a nod to the great Stevie Wonder – uptight. . . alright and out of sight!”
“And this year we’re proud to announce that the show will include more number one hits than ever before.
