Attended Smokey Robinson concert tonight - LOVED IT!!!

Hubby and I had a great time listening to all the classic songs.  He sang songs from the Temptations, Stevie Wonder, his own collection, etc.  He said Stevie & him are like brothers.  What I'd like to know (& I'm sure the audience) is what's his secret for being able to bounce around on stage without some part of the body tearing a ligament or in pain.  And what's his diet secret?  Geez, can I have a physique like him when I get to be his age?  He just put all those 20 something singers to shame. 

Anyway, the audience was about 90% baby boomers - what a shame.  The younger generations need to learn his music and realize what they're missing.  I loved the way he got the audience to interact - ex. he sang "My Girl", then had the entire audience sign the song solo - 2x - the first time it wasn't loud enough.  Later, he invited 2 members of the audience & split the audience in 1/2 to sing along with him in a duet.

It was a fun night - considering hubby and I don't get out much.
