The landscape of American music would not be what it is today without the soulful contributions of Motown Records. And with that said, Motown Records wouldn’t be the R&B juggernaut we know today without the musical styling of The Temptations and The Four Tops. The Temptations are synonymous with the sounds of the ’60s thanks to hits like “My Girl,” “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg” and countless others. Despite several personnel changes over the last half-century, founding and sole surviving original member Otis Williams remains the leader and has been integral in maintaining the legacy of The Temptations. Best known for the ubiquitous rom-com soundtrack staple “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch),” The Four Tops maintained the same lineup for decades until founding member Lawrence Payton died in 1997. The legendary quartet’s latest roster includes sole surviving original member Duke Fakir and Payton’s son Roquel. $44.50-$67.50, 7:30pm Thu, The Majestic Theatre, 224 E. Houston St., 226-3333, majesticempire.com. — Erik Casarez
