Smokey Robinson, one of the most iconic figures in American R&B, is set to make his triumphant return to DPAC for an intimate, one-night engagement. The Motown legend and pioneer will perform at DPAC on Sunday, April 29, 2018.

Great seats on sale Fri, Dec 1 at 12pm.

Acclaimed singer-songwriter Smokey Robinson’s career spans over 4 decades of hits. Smokey Robinson is responsible for much of what is known as the ‘Motown sound,’ having written, produced and performed a vast number of the label’s signature hits. Over his five decade career, Smokey founded the Miracles, scouted talent like the Supremes for Motown, and he helped define pop-oriented soul with his smooth tenor voice, impeccable timing and profound sense of lyric.

With over 4,000 songs to his credit, Smokey’s many Motown hits include his solo classics like “Cruisin’” and “Being With You”; the Miracles’ “Ooo Baby Baby,” “Going to a Go-Go,” “Tears of a Clown,” and “The Tracks of My Tears”; the Temptations’ “My Girl” and “Get Ready”; Mary Wells’ “My Guy”; Marvin Gaye’s “I’ll Be Doggone” and many more. Covered by the Beatles (“You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me”), The Captain & Tennille (“Shop Around”) and Ella Fitzgerald (“The Hunter Gets Captured by the Game”), Smokey was deservedly awarded the Kennedy Center Honors in 2006.

Robinson has received numerous other awards including the Grammy® Living Legend Award, NARAS Lifetime Achievement Award, and an Honorary Doctorate from Howard University and the National Medal of Arts Award from the President of the United States. He has also been inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame.
