Celebrating 50 years of UK number one hit singles, the Magic of Motown brings its brand-new 2014 Reach Out tour to town.

Songs like Dancing in the Street, My Girl, Where Did Our Love Go, My Guy and Baby Love rocketed Motown to the top of the singles charts in 1964.

Half a century on and direct from the USA, The Magic of Motown promises five-star performance authentically reviving the style and sophistication of everyone’s favourite Motown legends.

In 1964 Motown crossed the Atlantic to become a musical phenomenon on these shores. The labels’ touring concert show, the Motown Revue starring Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, the Temptations, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, (Little) Stevie Wonder and Diana Ross and the Supremes, paved the way for Motown’s chart-storming success in the UK. That year the UK singles charts were peppered with Motown songs.

To mark the occasion, The Magic of Motown brings an all-new production for 2014 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.

“Come and celebrate 50 years of number one hits,” he said. “With the Reach Out 2014 Tour, the magic of Motown is truly coming to town.”

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. Show producer Michael Taylor said: “The Magic of Motown 2014 Reach Out Tour brings to the stage 36 of these chart toppers back-to-back in one critically-acclaimed production.”

“As well as dazzling dance moves and glittering costumes galore the elusive, the authentic sound of Motown is recreated by our incredible Magic of Motown band.”

The group, especially put together for the show, celebrate their tenth year together on this tour.

The Magic of Motown, takes place on Friday, August 22, 7.30pm at the Embassy Theatre, Skegness. Tickets £21.50, Children, £10, are available from the box office on 0845 674 0505 or online at
