Former lead singer for The Supremes and reigning Queen of Motown Diana Ross will dust off her crown and hit the road this spring for the More Today Than Yesterday Tour.
The 17-city trek kicks off May 15 at the Citi Performing Arts Center in Boston, MA, and concludes June 12 at The Mountain Winery in Saratoga, CA. Other stops along the way include May 19 at Radio City Music Hall in New York, NY; May 27 at Chicago Theatre in Chicago, IL; and June 9 at Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, CA.
Tickets are already available for a May 18 concert at Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, NJ. Additional onsales are booked for March 19, as well as the end of the month and mid-April. More information about ticketing is available on Ross’ official Facebook page.
Ross’ plans for the upcoming tour will be fit for a diva. According to a statement, the upcoming sessions will be backed by a live string and horn section, while Ross “will be pulling out all the stops with breathtaking costumes and stage designs.”
The one-month tour will cull its setlist from Ross’ hit-filled, 50-year career. During the first decade of her career, Ross recorded iconic hits such as “Stop! In the Name of Love” and “You Can’t Hurry Love” with The Supremes. When she moved on as a solo artist in the ’70s and later decades, she topped the charts with her version of “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” as well as original tunes like “Touch Me in the Morning” and “Love Hangover.”
The singer’s most recent studio album, “I Love You,” was released in the U.S. in January 2007 and debuted at No. 32 on the Billboard 200.
