The Jackson 5 will be just one of the acts recreated on stage at Aberdeen's Music Hall by the Magic of Motown's Reach Out show, a two-hour dip into the Detroit label's massive back catalogue of No1 and international hits.


THE Magic of Motown's brand-new 2014 Reach Out Tour will bring 50 years of UK and international No1 hit singles back to vibrant and colourful life when the show visits Aberdeen Music Hall on Thursday, May 8.

Songs like Dancing in the Street, My Girl and Baby Love rocketed Motown to the top of the singles charts in 1964.

"Incredibly, 100 more Motown No1s followed worldwide," said Magic of Motown producer Michael Taylor.

"The Magic of Motown 2014 Reach Out Tour brings 36 of those chart-toppers to the stage back-to-back in one critically-acclaimed production.

"This year's show includes more No1 hits than ever before.

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

"In their capable hands, we can guarantee that the score will, with a nod to the great Stevie Wonder, be uptight, alright and out of sight!"

The show features classic hits from The Temptations, The Four Tops, The Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Lionel Richie and The Supremes packed into a two-hour spectacular.
