Motown legends are coming to Qatar for the first time. The original members of The Temptations and The Supremes, two of the most renowned artists from the world famous R&B and soul music Motown label, are roaming the stage in the lush garden of the Doha Marriott on Friday 22 March 2013.

Bilal Taha, one of the event organisers, said:

‘We are so proud that we will bring both of these outstanding bands in Doha and that we are able to present something for another target group. Those who love the real soul and pop music from the golden days are normally a bit under-supplied. This is to bring high class entertainment to them.

‘Our aim is to make this a festive gala more than a normal concert. That’s why we decided for a completely seated set up with banquet tables. Tuxedos and evening gowns are more than welcome. After the concert, a soul and oldie DJ from Europe will entertain those who are in the mood for shaking the leg.’

Motown Records isn’t just a regular label, it played an important role in the racial integration of popular music by achieving a crossover success in the US. From 1961 to 1971, Motown had 110 top 10 hits. Top artists on the Motown label during that period included Diana Ross, The Supremes, The Four Tops and The Jackson 5, while Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, The Marvelettes and The Miracles released hits on the sister label Tamla.

Regular tickets are available at QR295, including a welcome drink, and VIP tickets are available at for QR595, including a 3-course dinner and refreshments. Tickets are available at Virgin Megatsore at either Villaggio or Landmark, as well as at the Doha Marriott’s lobby booth and Ric’s Kountry Kitchen.
