Temptations, Four Tops among acts in WHIO-TV concert series at Fraze

Three-concert series also includes Sail Rock 2013 featuring Christopher Cross and The Guess Who with former Journey lead singer Steve Augeri


The Temptations and The Four Tops, The Guess Who with former Journey lead singer Steve Augeri and Sail Rock 2013 featuring Christopher Cross are three summer concerts announced today as part of the WHIO-TV Concert Series at Fraze Pavilion in Kettering.

“The Temptations/Four Tops concert is one big singalong; the Sail Rock show takes us back with some songs you don’t hear performed live all the time; and The Guess Who — well they started off the WHIO-TV series, so they’re a special group to have return. Steve Augeri, opening for the Guess Who, was the front man for Journey a few years back when we had them at Fraze. He’s a great entertainer,” said Karen Durham, general manager, Fraze Pavilion.

About each concert:

  • The Temptations and The Four Tops: Wednesday, June 26, 8 p.m. Tickets will range from $27-47. The Temptations’ top hits include “Just My Imagination,” “Get Ready,” “My Girl” and “The Way You Do The Things You Do.” The Four Tops’ top hits include “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch),” “It’s the Same Old Song” and “Reach Out (I’ll Be There).”
  • The Guess Who with special guest Steve Augeri, former lead singer of Journey: Thursday, July 11, 8 p.m. Tickets will range from $25-$42. Augeri was Journey’s lead vocalist from 1998 to 2006. The Guess Who’s hits include: “These Eyes,” “Clap For the Wolfman,” “Hand Me Down World,” “No Time,” “Star Baby” and “Share the Land.”
  • Sail Rock 2013 featuring Christopher Cross, Orleans, Gary Wright, Firefall, John Ford Coley, Robbie Dupree and Player: Thursday, Aug. 8, 8 p.m. Tickets will range from $25-$45. The set list will include top hits from original artists such as “Ride Like The Wind,” “Dream Weaver” and “Sailing.”

Tickets for all three concerts go on sale at 9 a.m. April 6, at the Fraze FanFare store in Town & Country Shopping Center, 300 E. Stroop Road, Kettering, or online at www.fraze.com or www.etix.com. Tickets will be limited to four per person the first day of sale.

“Each year, we try to find a diverse line-up of acts for the Miami Valley to come out and enjoy with WHIO-TV and Cox Media Group,” said John Condit, General Sales Manager, WHIO-TV.

Highlights of some of the top acts performing at the Fraze this summer are: Men of Soul featuring Jeffrey Osborne, Peabo Bryson, Freddie Jackson and Howard Hewett (July 12); John Waite (July 19); Hunter Hayes (July 23); Brian Wilson (July 25); Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers featuring Edie Brickell (July 28); Josh Groban (Aug. 13); and Tony Bennett (Aug. 25).

More concerts will be announced in April, Durham said.

“We’re looking forward to several big nights this summer with those artists we’ve already announced and a few surprises we still have to share,” Durham said. “It’s going to be an incredible evening when both Tony Bennett and Josh Groban visit Fraze — and country newcomer Hunter Hayes is red hot right now.”
