A celebration of the soulful sounds of Detroit is due to roll into Northampton tonight with Motown’s Greatest Hits – How Sweet It Is.

Five accomplished vocalists will perform the songs of Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Lionel Richie, Stevie Wonder, The Four Tops and many more, backed by a top-class live band for an authentic Motown experience at the Royal & Derngate.

This feel-good show takes a nostalgic trip through the record label’s incredible back catalogue, from the classic soul of the Sixties, through the funk and disco eras, to the smooth R&B of the 1980s.

Hits including Reach Out I’ll Be There, Walk Away Renee, My Girl, Ain’t Too Proud To Beg, Get Ready, I Heard It Through The Grapevine, The Tracks Of My Tears, I Want You Back, Loco in Acapulco, and Dancing On The Ceiling will all be played with slick choreography.

Doors open at 7.30pm and tickets cost £21. To book, call 01604 624811 or visit
