The Jacksons & The Commodores
September 4, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Two Motown legends, at NJPAC for the first time! The Jacksons (“Can You Feel It,” “Shake Your Body”) gave Michael Jackson his first taste of stardom. The Grammy-winning Commodores (“Easy,” “Brick House”) are the prolific soul and funk hitmakers of the ‘70s and ‘80s.
Probably the most recognizable family in pop music, this year The Jacksons celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Jackson 5. Their Unity Tour includes all the megahits made famous with their brother, Michael, including “ABC,” “I Want You Back,” “I’ll Be There,” “Rockin’ Robin,” and many more. The Jacksons are Rock and Roll Hall of Famers with five No. 1 albums, 18 No. 1 hits, 17 Top 10 albums and 17 Top 40 singles.
After being discovered by Berry Gordy, The Commodores went on to sell more than 60 million records for Motown. An absolute staple of the funk and soul community, the bandmates from Tuskegee are behind such chart-toppers as “Nightshift,” “Sail On” and “Machine Gun.” The Commodores of the present have not only produced six new albums and embarked on a worldwide tour, but have created their own record label and earned a new generation of fans through the combined experience of three decades of writing, producing and performing hit music.
