The O'Jays and Special Guest Gladys Knight are performing at HOFV!
Canton’s own Rock and Roll Hall of Famers with special guest, The Empress of Soul, Gladys Knight is coming to Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium as part of the Canton band’s “Last Stop on The Love Train: The Final Tour!
The Canton, Ohio group, led by original members Eddie Levert Sr., Walter Williams Sr., and Eric Grant (joined in 1995), are pioneers of the Philly Soul sound of the 70s and has been together, in various forms, for more than 60 years.
Before the show, members of the Canton Symphony Orchestra will take the stage at 6PM for a 45-minute performance of “Soulful Sounds,” a collection of popular R&B and Soul songs from the 60s and 70s, to set the mood for the rest of the evening.
The show begins with seven-time Grammy Award winner Gladys Knight. She and The Pips were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996. Knight will be among the 2022 Kennedy Center Honorees in December.
