Celestial diva Diana Ross – she of Supremes and R&B solo legend – ended 2018 big; she wrapped her glittering Las Vegas residency, appeared on a float at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and even released a Christmas album. Now she’s starting 2019 right by bringing her “Brand New Day” tour to the South. The choice of hits she can pull from is nearly mind-boggling – from girl-group barn-burners to sensual disco gems to torchy show-stoppers. As well, her voice and mystique are undiminished over 40 years of relentless performing. One of a kind.
