The Meridian Star

MERIDIAN —     The Four Tops take the stage of the MSU Riley Center on Friday, Nov. 16, at 7:30 p.m.

    The pre-show party begins at 6 p.m.

    Tickets are $34-$40. Visit the website or call (601) 696-2200.

    By the time they signed with the Motown label in 1964, these four Detroit harmonizers— Levi Stubbs, "Obie" Benson, Lawrence Payton, and "Duke" Fakir — had been singing together for 10 years.

    They kept recording well into the 1990s, with hits such as, "I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)" and "Baby I Need Your Loving."

    Today The Four Tops tour with the original member, "Duke" Fakir, and three additional singers who help keep the Motown sound alive.
