Beach Boys, Temptations tour Australia: photos, video

The sounds of “My Girl” and “Kokomo” will be heard drifting down Crown Street next February as The Tempations and The Beach Boys play for one night only.

The current lineup* of the surf-rock group, led by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston, will take the audience back to where their multi-layered harmonies and laid-back sound began in the 1960s.

Fifty years and 100 million album sales later it’s hard to find someone who hasn’t heard their hits like “Surfin’ USA” and “I Get Around”.

The same goes for the legends of R&B and soul, The Temptations, who became known for their doo-wop harmonies, smooth choreography and stars of Motown.

Over their career, the group released four US number-one singles and 14 US number-one R&B singles, and their material earned them three Grammy Awards.

The Beach Boys and The Temptations play WIN Entertainment Centre February 10, 2017. Tickets from Ticketmaster.

* This tour will not feature Brian Wilson, Al Jardine or David Marks with The Beach Boys.
