Diana Ross to tour the UK in 2020

Fans can catch the Motown icon in arenas next summer.

Music icon Diana Ross has confirmed details of a rare UK tour.

The new run of dates kicks off in Leeds on Tuesday 30 June 2020 and will also see the legend take to the stage at shows in Liverpool, Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham and London.

The news follows the announcement that Ross will appear at this year’s sold out Glastonbury Festival, where she’ll perform the coveted Sunday legend’s slot on the Pyramid Stage.

Born and raised in Detroit, Diana Ross first found fame as the lead singer of the powerhouse vocal group The Supremes, recording hit singles such as Stop! In The Name Of Love, You Can’t Hurry Love, Baby Love and You Keep Me Hangin’ On.

Following her departure from the group in 1970, Diana Ross embarked on a solo career which has seen her become one of the biggest selling recording artists of all time.

The singer has released 24 solo studio albums in her career so far and has celebrated 47 top 40 singles in the UK alone, including the No.1 tracks I’m Still Waiting and Chain Reaction. 

Just some of her most well-known tunes include Why Do Fools Fall In Love, When You Tell Me That You Love Me, Not Over You Yet, When You Tell Me That You Love Me, Work That Body and You Are My Everything.

In recognition of her glittering recording career, Ross was awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012, and in 2016 President Obama awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Aside from music Ross is also an acclaimed actress, receiving Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations for her 1972 debut film Lady Sings The Blues. 

The Motown legend will come to the UK next summer for a run of headline arena shows.
