The Temptations, often referred to as American music royalty, are celebrating their 60th anniversary with a brand-new album, Temptations 60, and a stop in Scottsdale on their national tour. Supporting act is Sandra Bassett.
The Temptations’ heritage, influence, and contributions to not only American culture and African American communities but also to the global music landscape are monumental. The influence they had on mainstream and global artists, such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, and others, is undeniable.
Ranked #1 in Billboard magazin’s most recent list of the “Greatest R&B/Hip-Hop Artists of All Time,” The Temptations also appear in the magazine’s 125th Anniversary list of the “125 Greatest of All Time Artists.” In addition, Rolling Stone magazine named the group among the “100 Greatest Artists of All Time.” In September of 2020, editors of Rolling Stone magazine commented that The Temptations are “Indisputably the greatest black vocal group of the Modern Era” and listed the group’s Anthology album among the “500 Greatest Albums of All Time.”
The Temptations have been awarded five Grammys®—including the Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award— and they have an additional nine Grammy® nominations. They garnered Motown’s first Grammy® in 1969 for Best Rhythm & Blues Performance by a Duo or Group, Vocal or Instrumental, for their song “Cloud Nine.”
