On Sunday August 25th live on stage the Magic of Motown music show hits Blackpool’s Grand Theatre. The smash hit show includes all the biggest Motown tribute acts straight from the United States. The show features stunning choreography, sparkling costumes, and the magic of Detroit soul music. Blackpool’s Grand Theatre Stuns Visitors Blackpool’s Grand Theatre, the old showgirl of music hall herself, hosts the touring concert, in the gorgeous ornate theatre. Known as The Grand Old Lady, Blackpool Grand Theatre is worth a visit to view the gorgeous interior, originally built in 1894, and designed by Frank Matcham; one of the Victorian era’s most famous theatre designers in England and the world. Motown Showcases Stellar Performances Motown was put together to commemorate 50 years of number one hits by big artists from the Detroit soul scene including Stevie Wonder, The Four tops, Diana Ross, Marvin Gay, Gladys Knight and the Pips, The Vandellas, Lionel Richie, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, the Commodores and the Isley Brothers. As you dance the night away in Blackpool’s Grand Theatre, you will enjoy hit songs such as: Stop in the Name of Love, My Guy, and Come See About Me, by the Supremes. Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I’m Yours by Stevie Wonder – made famous again as the theme for the US President’s election campaign win. What becomes of the Broken Hearted, originally released in 1966 by Jimmy Ruffin and I heard it through the Grapevine by Marvin Gaye both stormed the US charts in the same year, and made both artists world famous that year. Endless Love, All Night Long, Why do Fools Fall in Love, Dancing in the Street, ‘Aint no Mountain High Enough, and many more fabulous songs will entertain you during this 36 song-list performance extravaganza! Motown began in 1959 with the formation of Motown Records Detroit. The sign outside read “Hitsville USA” and certainly lived up to its name. Since that time, Motown artists have made slick dance moves, incredible musical tunes, and stylish looks their trademark.
