The 7:30 p.m. performance will feature many of the greatest hits from the legendary Motown era.

In the early '60s, some of the most iconic names in the history of popular music were discovered in the Motor City, better know simply as Motown. Masters of Motown is a celebration of these artists, their music and their style. The show features stylishly costumed, fully choreographed tributes to both male and female groups of the era.

Masters of Motown's dynamic vocalists are backed by a band of seasoned musicians who have been performing together for decades.

The audience will take the ultimate stroll down memory lane as they relive -- or discover for the first time -- the incredible harmonies and smooth moves made famous by many of the greatest recording acts of all-time. Acts honored include The Temptations, Gladys Knight and The Pips, Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell, Smokey Robinson and The Miracles, The Four Tops, Diana Ross and The Supremes, The Jackson Five, Martha Reeves and The Vandellas, Stevie Wonder, The Commodores, and many more.
