SCOPE Productions has the pleasure of announcing that THE TEMPTATIONS will be performing for the 2009 Homecoming show on the Pentacrest Lawn, Friday, September 26th following the Homecoming parade. This show will be FREE and open to the public. Another youth oriented artist will be announced later in the summer.
For more than 40 years The Temptations have prospered, propelling popular music with a series of smash hits and sold-out performances around the world. In the midst of their success, The Temptations played at The University of Iowa on April 6, 1974, and after thirty years they’re back! Famous for their rhythm & blues as well as contemporary pop music, the Motown Machine produced hits like: “The Way You Do the Things You Do”, “My Girl”, “Just My Imagination”, “I Can’t Get Next To You”, “Papa Was A Rolling Stone”, “Treat Her Like A Lady”, and “Stay”.
Thanks to their fine-tuned choreography, and even finer harmonies, The Temptations became the definitive male vocal group of the 1960s and one of Motown's most unique acts. The current lineup of Otis Williams, Terry Weeks, G.C. Cameron, Ron Tyson, and Joe Herndon moved forward in the next generation capturing a Grammy in 2000 for their latest album Ear Resistible; The Temptations remain a vital, hit making group.
