All aboard the “Love Train” — two Ohio-bred hit-makers are coming together for a special evening at Detroit's Fox Theatre.

Chart-topping R&B legends the O'Jays will join the Isley Brothers for a Detroit performance on Sunday, Oct. 27 at 7:30 p.m. The performance is an extension of the Isley Brothers' 60th-anniversary tour to commemorate their iconic 1959 debut record, Shout!, which delivered the surviving Isleys, Ronald, 77, and guitarist Ernie, 66, to Detroit's Sound Board in January.

Tickets ($40+) go on sale Friday, June 7 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased here.
