About The Event
With the unmistakable voices that helped define an entire generation of music in America, Mary and Martha reign today as two of Motown’s most beloved singers, with 14 Billboard #1 singles, 7 Billboard #1 albums, and 42 Billboard top ten singles between them.
Mary Wilson is an American vocalist, best known as a founding member and longest member of the Supremes. Wilson remained with the group following the departures of other original members, Florence Ballard in 1967 and Diana Ross in 1970. Following Wilson's own departure in 1977, the group disbanded. Wilson has since released three solo albums, five singles and two best-selling autobiographies, Dreamgirl: My Life As a Supreme, a record setter for sales in its genre, and Supreme Faith: Someday We'll Be Together; both books later were released as an updated combination.
Continuing a successful career as a concert performer, Wilson also became a musicians' rights activist as well as a musical theater performer and organizer of various museum displays of the Supremes' famed costumes. Wilson was inducted along with Ross and Ballard (as members of the Supremes) into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988.
Martha Rose Reeves is an American R&B and pop singer and former politician, and is the lead singer of the Motown girl group Martha Reeves and the Vandellas. They scored over a dozen hit singles, including "Come and Get These Memories,” "Nowhere to Run,” "Heat Wave,” "Jimmy Mack,” and their signature "Dancing In The Street.” From 2005 until 2009, Reeves served as an elected council woman for the city of Detroit, Michigan.
The Legendary Ladies of Motown tour promises an unforgettable evening of world-class talent combined with a night of non-stop, crowd-pleasing, chart-topping singles! Drawing from multiple Billboard hits such as “You Can’t Hurry Love,” “Stop! In the Name of Love,” and “Where Did Our Love Go,” along with “Heat Wave,” “Dancing in the Street,” and “Nowhere to Run,” the pairing of Reeves and Wilson packs a popular punch for Motown music fans at The Peabody!
