Dianna Ross was Supreme and Paramount as she eased on down to the Garden. A Dianna Ross Concert Review.

On Saturday June 21st at 8pm Dianna Ross of Motown fame appeared at the Madison Square Garden’s Paramount Theater to a full house as it started on time as many were looking for seats for a while. Dianna Ross had many hits and Dianna Ross and the Supremes were on the most jukebox of any group. She was a good friend to Michael Jackson. Her daughter opened with a half hour of jazz or rhythm and blues music. There was a 15 minute break and Dianna Ross sang for an hour and 15 minutes. Everyone was standing the whole concert. She has a lot of personality but spoke very little between songs other than to introduce them. Her voice was till good and you would never know she is 70. There was a good sound system. The band was very good with 4 brass instruments, 2 drummers, a piano player and 3 backup singers. Almost all the songs she sang were her hits or others in her genre. The encore had 9 of her group dancing. She shakes her shoulders very seductively in her shimmering sequins gowns which she changes every few songs. Her best songs were Touch Me in the Morning and Do You Know Where You’re Going To. You can hear here songs and that genre at this site or type in another artist. http://www.last.fm/listen/artist/Diana%2BRoss/similarartists.
