ELKHART — Nearly 50 years after The Temptations scored their first chart-topping hit with “My Girl,” the group is bringing its famous Motown sound to downtown Elkhart.

Just a day after soft rock duo Air Supply plays the Lerner Theatre, the Temptations will take the stage March 1, ready to charm fans in the 1,700-seat venue with their sharp vocal harmony and signature choreography. Tickets for the concert go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Dec. 27.

Known for the hits “Just my Imagination,” “Papa was a Rollin' Stone” and “Ain't Too Proud to Beg,” The Temptations received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in February, and in August, the group was inducted into the R&B Music Hall of Fame.

“We're extremely excited to have such a legendary group perform at the Lerner, and it confirms our efforts as a community to bring great performances to our town,” Lerner general manager David Smith said.

The group's lineup includes singer Otis Williams, who originally formed The Temptations in the early '60s, with Joe Herndon, Terry Weeks, Ron Tyson and Bruce Williamson.

Tickets will be $39.50 to $69.50 online at, by phone at 293-4469 or at the box office, 410 S. Main St.
