Rock and Roll Hall of Famers The Temptations make a triumphant return to the Chevy Court stage Tuesday, August 28 at 2 p.m. at the 2018 Great New York State Fair. The performance is on the second of two Senior Days, which feature free admission for people age 60 and older. It’s the ninth appearance at the Fair for The Temptations, with the last appearance coming in 2006. Concerts at Chevy Court are sponsored by Chevrolet and are free with admission to the Fair.
For nearly 60 years, The Temptations have reigned as one of popular music's most beloved and successful groups worldwide, lauded by Billboard in 2017 as the #1 R&B Artist of All Time. The Temptations rose to the top of the charts with 16 #1 R&B albums and 43 Top Ten R&B hit songs across four decades, including 14 #1 singles. Their hits "My Girl," "Ain't Too Proud To Beg," and "Get Ready" are timeless, iconic classics, while the group's later forays into funk and psychedelia, including "Cloud Nine" and "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone," are just as influential. The group is one of Rolling Stone's “100 Greatest Artists of All Time.”
The Temptations are pleased to announce their first new album in eight years, “All The Time.” “All The Time” features inspired renditions of songs by Sam Smith, Bruno Mars, John Mayer, Maxwell, Ed Sheeran, Michael Jackson, and The Weeknd, and three new, original Temptations songs.
The Temptations were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989, into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1999, and into the Rhythm & Blues Music Hall of Fame in 2013, the same year they were honored with the Recording Academy's Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award. Winner of four Grammy Awards, they received Motown's first-ever Grammy in 1969 for "Cloud Nine." The Temptations are: Otis Williams, Ron Tyson, Terry Weeks, Larry Braggs, and Willie Greene.
