A Trip Down Memory Lane.
The anticipation that something great was about to happen, quickly swept through the Orleans Showroom in Las Vegas as the crowd eagerly awaited for the show to start. This was not just another concert, it was an event that would last a lifetime. An event that seemed like a lifetime ago, yet memories have its way of finding its way back in time. The audience was absolutely mesmerized as they were reminiscing down memory lane as if each person knew how to go back in time – a time when music had meaningful stories with a sound that sent chills of delight throughout your whole body. A time where musical groups had soul, passion and the ability to transform sound into sweet energy that filled the senses to the rhythm and beat of the performers, creating a cadence of pure pleasure. The audience sang, danced and completely were absorbed in yesteryear as one of the worlds greatest musical groups came to life once again. Yes, the Temptations were back, a bit older yet just as talented as they were when they started over 54 years ago. A remarkable story of an incredible hall of fame musical group.
The Temptations came out in style with their flashy and catchy wardrobe, dancing in sync to one of their greatest hits “Get Ready,” with a youthful passion that has transcended time. The hits just kept on coming non-stop as they continued to create time travel with such hits as: I Can’t Get Next To You Babe, The Way You Do The Things You Do, My Girl, Papa Was A Rolling Stone, Just My Imagination, I Wish It Would Rain, Treat Her Like a Lady, and others.
There were touching moments such as when the only living original Temptation was introduced: Otis Williams. Otis still performing at the ripe young age of 73, and is responsible for continuing the legacy and legend of the Temptations. The other members fit right in continuing with the talent, dancing, singing and joy that made the Temptations one of the greatest musical groups in history.
And when the concert was over, the Temptations stayed on stage to shake the hands with their fans who just witnessed a concert that was more like an event which will live forever in the hearts and souls of all those who attended.
