For over 40 years The Temptations have prospered, with an avalanche of smash hits, and sold-out performances throughout the world! Beyond their unique blend of voices and flashy wardrobe, The Temptations became known for their sharp choreography known as “The Temptation Walk” which became a staple of American style, flair, flash and class and one of the defining legacies of Motown Records. Millions of fans saw their Temptations as cultural heroes. The group had thirty seven, Top 40 hits to their credit, including fifteen Top 10 hits and a quartet which soared to No. 1. on the R&B charts. They have fifteen No. 1 singles, and seventeen No. 1 albums. The titles alone summon memories beyond measure: “The Way You Do The Things You Do,” “My Girl,” “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg,” “I Wish It Would Rain,” “I Can’t Get Next To You”, “Get Ready”, “Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me),” “Ball of Confusion”, “Papa Was A Rollin’ Stone.” “Beauty is Only Skin Deep”, “Cloud Nine,” “Psychedelic Shack”, “Runaway Child”, “Since I Lost My Baby”, and into the 80’s with “Treat Her Like a Lady”… and many more… For always, the Temptations are sunshine on a cloudy day...

The FOUR TOPS were among a number of groups, who established the Motown Sound heard around the world during the 1960’s. Their first Motown hit, ‘Baby I Need Your Loving’ in 1964, made them stars and their sixties track record on the label is indispensable to any retrospective of the decade. Their no. 1 hit songs include; ‘I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)’, and “It’s The Same Old Song” . Their commercial peak was highlighted by a romantic trilogy; the no. 1 hit “Reach Out I’ll Be There”, “Standing In The Shadows Of Love” and “Bernadette”. Other top hits included; “Baby I Need Your Loving”, “Ask The Lonely”, “Shake Me, Wake Me (When It’s Over)”, “Something About You”, “You Keep Running Away” and “7-Rooms Of Gloom”.

The group’s popularity endured in the ’70s and into the ’80s with hits such as “Ain’t No Woman (Like The One I’ve Got)” and “When She Was My Girl” making them one of the few groups to have hits in three consecutive decades.

In 1990, with 24 Top 40 pop hits to their credit, the Four Tops were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. Four Tops Webpage

Charlie Daniels With supporting acts Kyle Daniel and Whatley & Co. Friday, August 2, 2019 7:30 pm Tickets: $67, $57, $42, $27 From his Dove Award winning gospel albums to his genre-defining Southern rock anthems and his CMA Award-winning country hits, few artists have left a more indelible mark on America’s musical landscape than Charlie Daniels. An outspoken patriot, beloved mentor to young artists and still a road warrior at age 81, Charlie has parlayed his passion for music into a multi-platinum career and a platform to support the military, underprivileged children and others in need.

What’s there to say when you’ve conceded to the hardships of life? Kyle Daniel wrestles with this question throughout his sophomore EP, aptly titled What’s There to Say? Delivering his message via bright melodies and a wall of electric guitar, Daniel navigates the trials and tribulations of being a working musician, failed relationships, being surrounded by addiction and growing up in modern-day America. Wearing his heart on a tattered sleeve, he pairs everyman lyricism with a rusty vocal akin to Blackberry Smoke, Will Hoge and Chris Stapleton, bristled with a warm guitar bravado. It comes as no surprise that he’s road-dogged as a guitarist for Clare Dunn, Jimmy Hall and Casey James, as well as opened for the likes of Jason Isbell and Miranda Lambert. These are rich, authentic stories told from the perspective of someone who’s wrestled with the ups and downs of being a touring musician.

MPAC Live Presents The Mavericks Friday, August 23, 2019 7:30 pm Tickets: $42, $37, $33, $27 The Mavericks – masters of country-Latin rock’n’roll, born in the rich cultural mix of Miami then tempered in Nashville’s country hothouse – rode high in the country and rock charts of the 1990s with culture-crossing hits like ‘What A Crying Shame’ and ‘All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down’. Then they conquered Europe with the titanic feel-good party classic ‘Dance The Night Away’, a 400,000-seller in the UK. Yet nothing lasts forever, and in 2004 The Mavericks went on hiatus while frontman Raul Malo explored new musical avenues.

But since a reunion in 2012, this most singular of bands has re-established itself as one of the most exciting and joyfully entertaining acts on touring and festival circuit across the planet. It’s a reputation based on their irrepressible mix of country, Tex-Mex, rockabilly and Latino sounds plus a riotously entertaining, world-renowned live show. A Mavericks gig is a guaranteed party night encompassing everything from the essential ‘Dance The Night Away’ to the infectious Tejano-ska hybrid of ‘Back In Your Arms Again’ – and, on occasion, even wild cards like a Mavericks take on The Beatles ‘Back In The USSR’.

The Mavericks are true American originals, heirs to the great songwriting traditions of Cuba and Miami, of Nashville and San Antonio and Memphis. Now, on their 30th anniversary as a band, they’re back to remind the world why they’re so good.

Ol' Black Eyes is Back An Evening With Alice Cooper Sunday, November 10, 2019 8:00 pm Tickets: $112, $87, $67, $47
VIP offers available online only
Alice Cooper pioneered a grandly theatrical brand of hard rock that was designed to shock. Drawing equally from horror movies, vaudeville, and garage rock, the group created a stage show that featured electric chairs, guillotines, fake blood and boa constrictors. He continues to tour regularly, performing shows worldwide with the dark and horror-themed theatrics that he’s best known for.

With a schedule that includes six months each year on the road, Alice Cooper brings his own brand of rock psycho-drama to fans both old and new, enjoying it as much as the audience does. Known as the architect of shock-rock, Cooper (in both the original Alice Cooper band and as a solo artist) has rattled the cages and undermined the authority of generations of guardians of the status quo, continuing to surprise fans and exude danger at every turn, like a great horror movie, even in an era where CNN can present real life shocking images.
