Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - ON SHOW -

CEL­E­BRAT­ING 50 years of UK num­ber one hit sin­gles, the Magic of Mo­town brings its brand-new 2015 Reach Out Tour to Ayles­bury. Songs like Danc­ing in the Street, My Girl, Where Did Our Love Go, My Guy and Baby Love rock­eted Mo­town to the top of the sin­gles charts in 1964, said show pro­ducer Michael Tay­lor.

“In­cred­i­bly, 100 more Mo­town No1s fol­lowed world­wide,” he said. “The Magic of Mo­town 2015 Reach Out Tour brings to the stage 36 of th­ese chart top­pers back-to-back in one crit­i­cally ac­claimed pro­duc­tion.”

The show comes to the Wa­ter­side on Fe­bru­ary 6 at 7.30pm.

Di­rect from the USA, The Magic of Mo­town prom­ises five-star per­for­mances that will au­then­ti­cally re­vive the style and so­phis­ti­ca­tion of ev­ery­one’s favourite Mo­town leg­ends.

“This year we’re proud to an­nounce that the show will in­clude more num­ber one hits than ever be­fore,” added Michael.

Clas­sic hits from the Temp­ta­tions, Four Tops, Jack­son 5, Ste­vie Won­der, Marvin Gaye, Lionel Richie and The Supremes are packed into the two-hour spec­tac­u­lar.

“As well as daz­zling dance moves and glit­ter­ing cos­tumes galore,” said Michael. “the elu­sive, au­then­tic sound of Mo­town is recre­ated by our in­cred­i­ble Magic of Mo­town band.”

The group, es­pe­cially put to­gether for the show, cel­e­brate their tenth year to­gether on this tour.

“In their ca­pa­ble hands,” says Michael, “you can guar­an­tee that the score will be – with a nod to the great Ste­vie Won­der – uptight. . . al­right and out of sight!”
