dianaRoss_tickets

“Icons” and “Legends” are words that are thrown around pretty loosely these days, given to some artist who aren’t really deserving of them. These terms should only be reserved for those specific TALENTED group of people who left us musically in awe. One of those performers is Motown legend and former front-woman of the Supremes, Ms. Diana Ross.

Diana Ross’ famed and remarkable career spanning almost five decades has resulted with major awards and accolades and music history milestones. Diana Ross is a consummate performer as well as one of the most iconic female singers of all time and one of the most prominent women in popular music history and pop culture of the late 20th century.

With all of that said, she’s still making music and doing live performances, one of which will be in Baltimore. The show, which is part of her long running “In The Name Of Love Tour”, will bring Diana Ross to the Pier Six Pavilion in Baltimore’s historic Inner Harbor on Sunday, September 13, 2015 @ 7:30 pm. Her tickets go on sale Friday, June 26 and will range from $40 lawn view to $100 up close and personal seats. Once tickets go live, you can purchase them from Pier Six’s website.
