Soultown USA featuring "The Platters" and more
About the show
This New Year's Eve Lakeside brings the show "Soultown USA" to the stage presented by musical pioneers "The Platters"
Performing their No1 hits - "The Great Pretender", "Only You" and "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes", these true musical trailblazers bring you the authoritative story of soul and Motown in this brand-new-for-2020 stage show spectacular.
This musical masterpiece takes us back to 60s Detroit and beyond – when Ike and Tina Turner were "rolling on a river", the Spinners were still "Working their way back" and the world held on for Sam and Dave.
There'll be no hurrying The Supremes and those Motown memories as the tracks of Smokey Robinson's tears are well and truly retraced.
Audiences are guaranteed not to be too proud to beg for more, one more from The Temptations before getting their 70s boogie shoes on to hits from Rose Royce, Tavares and The Trammps.
During the late 50s, The Platters were the original African American chart toppers. Hits "My Prayer", "Twilight Time", "I'm Sorry", "Harbor Lights", "You'll Never Never Know", "It Isn't Right" and "Remember When" are also million-sellers in their own right.
Who better to revive soul music's golden years one last time in the must-see show of the year!
As well as this great stage show, we also have our own special DJ Paul Prentice ensuring that the music keeps coming.
