Motown Legends The Temptations Return to the IP Oct. 18

BILOXI, Miss.—Motown legends The Temptations will bring their smooth sounds to IP CASINO RESORT & SPA’s Studio A on Friday, Oct. 18.

For more than 50 years, The Temptations have shined as pioneers of popular music with decades of hits and sold-out performances. They began their musical career in Detroit in the early ‘60s, catapulting to stardom in 1964 with their first major hit, “The Way You Do the Things You Do,” written and produced by Smokey Robinson. Countless hits followed, including “My Girl,” “It’s Growing,” “Since I Lost My Baby,” “Get Ready,” “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg,” “Beauty is Only Skin Deep” and “I Wish it Would Rain.”

During the ‘60s and ‘70s, The Temptations’ sound evolved with hits like “Runway Child,” “Cloud Nine,” “I Can’t Get Next to You” and “Papa Was a Rolling Stone.” Success for the group continued into the ‘80s and ‘90s, and they were featured in the NBC mini-series that chronicled their early days and rise to fame, earning them an Emmy Award.
