Here Comes The Boss: Diana Ross Is Going On Tour in 2012 :
Diana Ross Concert datesWhile Cher and Bette Midler have been doing there thing in Las Vegas another diva, Diana Ross, had been mostly silent. Some of us wondered if she was content watching some of her children, notably Tracee Ellis Ross and Evan Ross, play the fame game. (Yes I know Rhonda’s in show business too.) However it turns out that Mama Diana isn’t quite finished yet—even though she has technically reached retirement age, 65. Entertainment Weekly.com is reporting that the one and only Miss Diana Ross will embark on her “More Today Than Yesterday” tour starting May 15th—hitting 17 cities in May and June of 2010 and into 2012.

There’s no denying that this is an opportunity to see a legend—who knows how many more chances we’ll have to see Diana Ross live. I’ve got to admit I’m kind of curious. But that curiosity is going to cost me since concert tickets generally run on the North side of 100 bucks. . Anyway, I’m glad she’s not trying to play stadiums but has chosen more manageable venues like Radio City Music Hall in New York City and the Fox Theater in Detroit among others. The entertainer will also hit the bright light circuit, at least on the East coast, with stops in Atlantic City and Foxwoods.

Okay, don’t kill me for saying this, but I do wonder if she still has enough die-hard fans to fill the venues. I still think about how folks were willing to risk being struck by lightening back in the day when a rainstorm struck during her Central Park concert back in 1983. The last time she toured was in 2007 and that seemed to have gone okay. But there was the “Return to Love” a few years back that had to be canceled—some say because of lackluster ticket sales. Now that concert tickets cost so much fans have become more discerning about the investments their willing to make but I do hope there are many willing to pony up for Miss Diana Ross simply because of who she is.

Diana Ross Biography (Short bio on Diana Ross) :
Best known as the the lead singer of the popular 1960s singing group The Supremes, Diana Ross was born on March 26, 1944, in Detroit, Michigan, the second of six children born to Fred and Ernestine. She is of African American and Native American descent. After being raised in housing projects for most of the late 1940s and early 1950s, Diana started singing in the gospel choir of a Baptist church. With friends Mary Wilson, Florence Ballard and Barbara Martin, she formed a vocal group, The Primettes, at age 15. After Barbara had departed the group, the remaining three girls inked a deal with Motown Records and were renamed The Supremes. The singer wasn't picked to become the group's lead singer until Motown honcho Berry Gordy decided that the time was exactly right, and from then on he described the group as "Diana Ross and the Supremes." From 1965 to 1969 the group had a string of #1 records. In late 1969 Gordy announced that Ross would be leaving the group for a solo career. In the third week of 1970 she played her last concert with The Supremes and started working with Diana Ross concertsthe songwriting team of Nick Ashford and Valerie Simpson. The first two songs by the team reached #1 on both the pop and R&B charts, justifying her move. Prior to starting a family of her own, the diva won the title role in the Billie Holiday biopic Lady Sings the Blues (1972), which was extremely successful at the box office, and had the distinction of being nominated for an Academy Award for her first film. The movie's soundtrack reached #1 on the U.S. charts. Despite fame and fortune, her next two big films, Mahogany (1975) and The Wiz (1978), didn't meet with the same success. However, she had a #1 hit single with "Mahogany" to make up for it. In February 1976, just before another #1 hit with "Love Hangover," she was stunned when her singing partner and friend, Florence Ballard, died after complications from a combination of alcohol abuse and long-term depression, which led to cardiac arrest. Ballard was only 32 years old and Ross was devastated by the loss.

After recovering from Ballard's death, the entertainer went on to focus on her singing career and continued having more #1 songs, including "Upside Down". The following year she performed the theme song from Endless Love (1981), which was composed by Lionel Richie. That same year she left Motown Records and signed contracts with various record companies across the globe, and formed her own production company. The following year she released "Silk Electric," on which she sang "Muscles," a song written and produced by Michael Jackson.

After she sang a tribute song dedicated to the late Marvin Gaye, the mistress scored another #1 song in 1986 in the UK with "Chain Reaction," which brought back her days as the member of The Supremes', and was written and produced by The Bee Gees. Unlike the song she sang when Florence died, this song was about how she became accustomed to Marvin over the years. After an eight-year absence, in 1989 the diva came back to Motown. The song writer had gained more fame through concert appearances over the years, and in April 1993 she became a best-selling author with her first and only children's book, "When You Dream," which featured a CD with four songs that were dedicated to the book. That same year she was declared by the Guinness Book of World Records to be the most successful female singer of all times. Two years later the singer was honored with the Heritage Award for Lifetime Achievement on the Soul Train Awards. After receiving those honors, she came back to the studio in 1999 with "Every Day Is A New Day," and the song reached the UK Top 10. The following year, with Mary Wilson--the only other surviving original Supremes member--she planned to book a Supremes reunion tour, but this was eventually canceled.

The diva was arrested in 2002 in Tucson, Arizona, for driving under the influence and after pleading guilty was sentenced to two days in jail, 36 hours of counseling and one year probation. Today she is hard at work finishing her forthcoming book, "Upside Down: Wrong Turns, Right Turns and the Road Ahead." more Diana Ross Biography here.
