Smokey Robinson bringing Motown to Hard Rock Live on April 23

The "Legend" label tends to get thrown around, but in this case, there's just no label that fits better. Smokey Robinson is one of, if not THE greatest Motown singer/songwriter in history.  His career with The Miracles produced tons of hit songs like "Shop Around", "Who's Loving You", and "The Tears of a Clown." He was a huge part of The Temptation's success, writing "My Girl", "The Way You Do the Things You Do", "Get Ready" and quite a few more.

Now he's appearing on American Idol watching kids ¼ his age cover his

songs, then showing them all up on stage. There aren't many chances to

see a living legend, especially one who still sounds like he did in his

prime, so take advantage. Tickets start at $47.50 and can be purchased

through Ticketmaster.
