Let me start by saying I am a huge Motown fan. Who isn't? But the Motown 50 show doing the round of Australia is just not quite right.

Alas you're right. I went to the Perth event and was disappointed to say the least. The best act by far was the four tops who kept the "chat" to a minimum and gave the audience what they'd come to hear -- those favorite motown hits of yesteryear. The big mystery was the inclusion of Jimmy Barnes in the line up -- he appeared embarassed to be there "screaming" through his numbers.If there had to be an Aussie content, Human Nature would have been a better choice, with a proven Motown track record.
Having said that, I realise that if these performers were in their late teens 50 yrs ago, then they'd be knocking 70 now and maybe i shouldnt have expected too much. Alas I prefer to remember them as they were in their heyday
