What You'll Get
The Motown sound embraced performers from soul, pop, and R & B backgrounds, though it cruelly rejected mountains, valleys, and rivers for their insufficient height, depth, and width. Revisit a beloved musical landscape with this deal to see Smokey Robinson Presents Human Nature: “The Motown Show” at the Orpheum Theatre. For $25, you get one ticket for reserved orchestra, mezzanine, or balcony seating on Friday, May 4, at 8 p.m. (up to a $70.35 value, including all fees).
Twenty-two years ago in Sydney, Australia, then-high-school students Andrew Tierney, Mike Tierney, Phil Burton, and Toby Allen were drawn together by an anachronistic passion for Motown and doo-wop. Nine albums and a 2.5-year residency in Las Vegas later, the fresh-faced foursome are touring the land that spawned the music they love with a tour presented by Smokey Robinson, who joined in on the recording of “Get Ready” on their new album, The Motown Record, and also helped polish production values and fend off mood-killingly weepy clowns. Other classics in the quartet’s repertoire include “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” “Dancing in the Street,” and an a cappella take on “Just My Imagination.”
Originally constructed in 1852, the Orpheum Theatre has taken on many names and functions through its long life, serving as a showplace for vaudeville acts, films, and live productions. Its classically styled red velvet seats unfurl beneath a vaulted ceiling marked by ornate domes, intricate paintings, and dents where Andre the Giant famously bumped his head.
