When student Thomas McClary decided to form a band with his college buddy in the late 60s, he would have been a confident man indeed to have predicted the success they would have.
His buddy was Lionel Richie, and the band they formed would ultimately become known as The Commodores.
The Commodores are coming to The Apex in Bury St Edmunds on January 28, and will feature guitarist McClary himself.
New and old generations of fans will hear some of the timeless classics, like Brick House, Easy, Nightshift and Three Times a Lady, as well as the new single Mr Cool Breeze.
Signed with the iconic Motown label in 1972, the band has been described as creating a sound that had never before been heard in America, and one which captured the nation.
Starting at 7.30pm, tickets are £36.50 - £34.50 for seated, with the standing price £33.50.
