Motown R&B sensation The Temptations topped the music charts of the 1960s with their unmistakable sound of soul. More than 40 years later, with many changes in lineup since the first “classic five,” Otis Williams still takes the stage as the last surviving original member of the group that launched its career with the Smokey Robinson-penned “The Way You Do the Things You Do.” “We’re about singing straight-up soul,” says Williams. “It’s a style that will live on forever.”

Sunday 6/19. $39.50-49.50, 8pm. The Paramount Theater, 215 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 979-1333.
