Even at age 83, Smokey Robinson can draw an audience based on the strength of his incredible musical output from the 1960s and on – both as a singer and a songwriter.

One of Motown’s most distinct vocal styles, which ranges effortlessly between high tenor down to a deep vibrato, Robinson still sounds like he has the voice of a young man.

Best known for his time as the frontman with Smokey Robinson and The Miracles in the 1960s and 1970s, he’ll be bringing literally dozens of hits to the OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino and Resort on Sept. 23 at 9 pm.

With the Miracles, Robinson sang the lead on such classic hits such as More Love, Shop Around, Going To A Go-G0, Mickey’s Monkey, I Second That Emotion, You Really Got A Hold On Me, Tracks Of My Tears and of course, their biggest hit, Tears of a Clown.

However, he was an equally prolific songwriter, penning You Beat Me To The Punch for Mary Well, My Girl and Get Ready for the Temptations, and Ain’t That Peculiar for Marvin Gaye.

Tickets are still on sale for the show at the 5,000-seat venue, starting at $70 and are available HERE.

In the meanwhile, here’s a taste of the concerts with Smokey Robinson and the Miracles biggest hit, Tears of a Clown.
