Motown legend Diana Ross will play The Marquee in June 2020.
The original diva will be one of the final acts to grace the stage of the venue before it finishes its final run in 2020 and construction begins on 1,000 new homes on the Showgrounds site.
The American singer, actress, and record producer, 75, rose to fame as the lead singer of the Supremes in the 1960s. The vocal group quickly became Motown’s most successful act and they remain the best charting female group in US history as well as one of the world’s best selling girl groups of all time.
