Frankfort's newly restored Grand Theatre is getting in on the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games action, booking Motown sensations The Temptations for the first two nights of the games, Sept. 25 and 26.
The band made pop music history with hits including My Girl and Ain't Too Proud to Beg in the mid-'60s. Original member Otis Williams is still with the group; the other four original members of its "classic five" lineup — David Ruffin, Melvin Franklin, Paul Williams and Eddie Kendricks — have died.
The group is to appear at the Grand as part of the Alltech Fortnight Festival, an entertainment complement to the World Equestrian Games, Sept. 25 to Oct. 10.
Tickets will be $65 to $90 and will go on sale beginning Feb. 18 through the Grand Theatre's office. It is open 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the theater, 308 St. Clair Street in Frankfort, or you can call (502) 352-7469 or go to www.grandtheatrefrankfort.org.
