Diana Ross Returns to Hollywood

Diana Ross Returns to Hollywood: Any chance to see one of the original Motown artists should be grabbed with both hands. When said artist was a Supreme, all the better. And hey, Ross has had a stellar solo career too. She’s a wonder. Joshua Henry also plays.

Prior to a 2019 performance, Falling James nailed it when writing that, “Any visitation from the divine Miss Ross is more likely to feel like a royal coronation than a mere concert performance, and while it’s not known yet which special guests will join her on her glittery runway, the singer is likely to draw from her extensive catalog of solo hits and Supremes classics — the kind of enduring love songs that have been burned into our collective consciousness for decades. The diva sounded in fairly fine voice when she pressed the flesh with the mere mortals in the crowd at the recent Grammy Awards.”

Meanwhile, the Hollywood Bowl’s blurb reads, “Fresh off the release of her new album Thank You, Diana Ross returns to the Hollywood Bowl for a two-night tour of her hits, which include ‘I’m Coming Out,’ ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,’ ‘Stop in the Name of Love,’ and so many more. Grammy- and Tony-nominated singer and Broadway star Joshua Henry opens both nights.”

Sounds like a blast.

Diana Ross Returns to Hollywood: The event takes place at 8 p.m. on Friday, August 26 and Saturday, August 27 at the Hollywood Bowl.
