Smokey Robinson at San Diego County Fair

June 26 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

A big Fair welcome to 50s, 60s and 70s music legend, Smokey Robinson as he croons his way onto the Corona Grandstand Stage as part of the San Diego County Fair’s Toyota Summer Concert Series. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, and DOUBLE Hollywood Walk of Fame member, Robinson started his career as The Miracles front man and rose up through the music industry ranks to the Hall of Famer he is today.

Multi-talented Smokey Robinson is an R&B and soul singer, songwriter, record producer and former Motown record executive who started his illustrious career dating back to the mid-50s. As the founder and frontman for the group The Miracles, becoming Smokey Robinson & The Miracles in 1965, Robinson was the chief songwriter and producer of their 22 albums and smash top ten hits such as, “You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me,” “Mickey’s Monkey,” “I Second That Emotion,” “Baby Baby Don’t Cry” and the group’s only number-one hit during their Robinson years, “The Tears of a Clown.” In 1972 he focused his full attention to helping run Motown Records, retiring in 1988. In early 2023 he wrote, recorded and released his first album in almost a decade, called Gasms. Robinson’s vocal mastery is known and loved by many across nearly four generations.
