Motown and music lovers of Australia rejoice! The Four Tops have announced they will be hitting our shores this December to woo audiences and relive their classic hits.
The Four Tops are a vocal quartet from Detroit in the United States of America. Founded in the 1950s, The Four Tops, who were originally known as the Four Aims, were among several groups who established the Motown Sound heard around the world during the 1960s. The group – Levi Stubbs, Abdul “Duke” Fakir, Renaldo “Obie” Benson and Lawrence Payton – remained together for over four decades, performing from 1953 to 1997 without a change in personnel.
All four members began their careers together as high school students in Detroit. After touring frequently and developing a polished stage presence in their infancy years, success finally followed the group after producing their first number 1 hit, “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)” in June 1965. The group then went on to release a long series of successful hit singles including “Reach Out I’ll Be There”, “Ain’t No Woman (Like the One I’ve Got)” and many more. The Four Tops records often represented the epitome of Motown Sound – simple, distinctive melodies and rhymes plus call and response lyrics.
After a couple of decades of recording successful singles and albums, in the late 1980s the group focused on touring and performing live. In recognition of their outstanding work, The Four Tops were rewarded with an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990. Having claimed numerous other prestigious awards since, they are no doubt one of the best musical groups.
