Smokey Robinson at the Fabulous Fox Theatre

Motown living legend William "Smokey" Robinson, Jr., will play Atlanta's Fabulous Fox Theatre this Saturday, January 26 at 8 p.m. The iconic singer, songwriter and Grammy-Award winning entertainer will perform all of his hit songs including “You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me,” “I Second That Emotion,” “The Tears Of a Clown," "Just to See Her," and "Cruisin."

"From the start, Robinson mastered the virtues of the Great American Songbook and its down-home cousin, the country standards: His songs were linguistically clever, emotionally direct, melodically indelible, and never overlong. By marrying these elements to a finger-snapping beat, he and Berry Gordy essentially created modern pop music as we know it," says The Concourse.com. 

Watch a sneak peek of what Smokey will be giving the audience tomorrow night:
