A Peterborough promoter is bringing a hit Motown show to The Broadway theatre off the back of previous success with two other shows.
Backing the show is city promoter Steve Jason who’s pledged his support to the venue after successfully bringing Alexander O’Neal and Shalamar to the theatre last year.
The Greatest Hits of Motown – How Sweet It Is, will be staged on Saturday May 25. Now in its 18th successive year, it’s a 100% live show combines first class music with the slickest choreography and an amazing band.
Steve told ESP – “I know the recent troubles of the theatre have been well documented but I also know that there’s a lot of genuine fondness for the theatre – just like there is for the two other theatres in the city.
“People have come out for the previous two shows we promoted at the theatre so hopefully they’ll trust us to deliver this time around as well. I think it’s no secret that this area has always been a hotbed for Soul music – especially Tamla Motown & Northern Soul – I’ve promoted several classic soul bands since 1985 and this Motown show sold out the 1300 capacity Derngate in Northampton on a cold January Sunday night.This show is a Bank Holiday Saturday in May – could you get a better day?!
‘’However, I’m fully aware that there was a Motown Tribute show at The Broadway scheduled for last November whereby some people who purchased tickets for cash from the theatre box office may have lost money so I am willing to swap their un-refunded tickets for tickets for this show. I’m willing to meet them in person at the theatre on Saturday February 2 between 11am and 1pm and providing they can prove they didn’t receive a refund for that particular show then I’ll give them tickets for this show.”
To make it a complete evening the venue is hosting an after show Motown / 70’s soul party in the main bar of the theatre that will start as soon as the show finishes and run through to 1am. The party will be hosted by DJ Jamie Trundle who is the man responsible for organising one of the biggest Motown Soul Weekenders every November in Hunstanton.
