You can hear all your favourite Motown songs at The Magic of Motown show when it comes to the Cambridge Corn Exchange in November.
The show, on November 27, celebrates 50 years of UK Number One hit singles, and will feature an exhausting 36 chart-toppers from all the Motown legends.
Songs like Stop in the Name of Love, I Can’t Help Myself, Tracks of My Tears and It’s the Same Old Song that rocketed artists like the Supremes, The Four Tops, and Smokey Robinson and the Miracles to the top of the singles charts in 1965, said show producer Michael Taylor.
“Incredibly, 100 more Number Ones followed worldwide. The Magic of Motown 2015 Reach Out Tour brings to the stage 36 of these chart toppers back-to-back in one critically-acclaimed production.”
Direct from the USA, The Magic of Motown promises five-star performances that will authentically revive the style and sophistication of everyone’s favourite musical legends.
“This year we’re proud to announce that the show will include more number one hits than ever before,” explained Michael.
Classic hits from the Temptations, Four Tops, Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Lionel Richie and The Supremes are packed into the two-hour spectacular.

In 1965 Diana Ross and the Supremes, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, Stevie Wonder and the Temptations crossed the Atlantic for a UK-wide tour of ABC, Odeon and Gaumont theatres which began the process of the artistes becoming musical phenomena on these shores.
To mark the occasion, The Magic of Motown brings an all-new production for 2015 to the stage with a 100-date nationwide tour.
Male lead in the show Andre Lejaune promises many new numbers added to the show’s already hit-packed score.
