The O’Jays: Last Stop On The Love Train – CANCELED
August 16 @ 8:00 pm EDT
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED. All tickets can be refunded at point of purchase.
The O’Jays: Last Stop On The Love Train is coming to the Covelli Centre on Wednesday, August 16, 2023 at 8:00pm. Doors at 7:00pm.
It starts with two iconic voices that are as unmistakable as they are soaring polar opposites. Indeed, the gruff, powerful Eddie Levert and the proverbial silky smooth Walter Williams, Jr., both founding members of the celebrated R&B group the mighty O’Jays, are so ingrained in the great American songbook that their music has become indelible landmarks in the pop culture consciousness. We all know the anthems that for more than four decades have moved seamlessly from soul and pop to funk and disco: “Love Train,” “For The Love of Money,” “Livin’ for the Weekend,” “Family Reunion,” “Stairway to Heaven,” “I Love Music,” “Cry Together…”
The hits are endless; the O’Jays’ legacy, as documented by their profound influence on hip-hop (EPMD’s “Give The People,” Heavy D & The Boyz’ “Now That We Found Love,” Big Pun’s “I’m Not A Player,” Drake’s “Fake Love”) to soul (Erykah Badu’s “Otherside of the Game,” Total’s “Tell Me,” Angie Stone’s “Wish I Didn’t Miss You”) is undeniable. With 10 gold and 9 platinum albums, omnipresent singles, and a string of sold-out tours, no one would blame the O’Jays for sitting back and enjoying the fruits of their remarkable 60-year career. But Eddie and Walter, along with group member Eric Nolan Grant, are different kinds of cats and are now set to embark on their final tour, so don’t miss the last stop on this love train.
Ticket Prices: $125.00, $99.50, $75.00, $55.00, $45.00. Tickets will be available at Ticketmaster.com and The Southwoods Health Box Office.
