Smokey Robinson at State Theatre

When: Sat., May 7 2011

The 32nd annual Tri-C JazzFest winds down this weekend with a handful of events, most notably a concert by the iconic R&B singer, songwriter, and performer Smokey Robinson. Both as a solo artist and as a member of Motown Records' first vocal group, the Miracles, Robinson delivered 37 Top 40 hits between 1960 and 1987. Among them: "Shop Around," "Tears of a Clown," and "I Second That Emotion." In fact, there aren't many honors that Robinson hasn't snagged: His bio includes multiple Grammys, gold records, and a 1987 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. You can catch the 71-year-old master tonight at 8 p.m. at the State Theatre on Playhouse Square. Ticket prices are $30 to $50; purchase yours by phone at 216-241-6000 or online at playhousesquare.com. The State Theatre is at 1519 Euclid Ave. — Cicora
