The Temptations & The Four Tops @ Casino de Paris, Paris March 31 2010

The Temptations & The Four Tops
@ Casino de Paris in... Paris, March 31 2010

Soul Music , that's the way we like it, Han Han !
REAL Soul Music, not that shit from Destiny's Child & Co even though Beyonce is much more sexy than all past & present members of The Four Tops & The Temptations put together.
They may be called The Four Tops but they could be re-christened The One Top as there's only one original member : Abdul « Duke » Fakir.
The Motown Quartet from... Detroit, famous in the 60's for their Doo-wop, jazz , Soul & even disco music is still active and doing good... very good indeed.

Abdul « Duke » Fakir, if there is one...

Can't be wrong with all these HITS : "Bernadette", "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)", "It's the Same Old Song", "Standing in the Shadows of Love" and many others I can't remember.

shake it man !

GREAT 45 min set, I mean really GREAT !

Otis Williams ( right)

20 min intermmission to get a drink and check all the pretty girls at the bar and it's time to get back into this beautiful théatre that's nearly sold-out tonight with VERY expensive tickets ( Of Course, it's a Gérard Drouot Prod° ) between 70 & 95 Euros.

Same thing with The Temptations, there's only one original member :Otis Williams.
The Temptations
are headlining which they already did when both bands played together in Paris @ the Olympia theatre a few years ago

Once again nothing can go wrong with a HITlist like they have : " My Girl", "Get ready", "I can't get next to you", "Papa was a rolling stone", "Just my Imagination", "Ball of confusion"... and many others.
It's simply unbelievable Hits after Hits...
The new guys have a great voice and the Temptations have always been one step above all the other Motown bands simply because the songs are great and they've played many different styles of music all along their career : Doo-wop, Jazz, soul, Rock Psyche, funk...

We have a winner

One of our best gig for 2010 !

"Get ready":

"My girl" & "I'm losing you":
