Diana Ross hasn’t graced a San Francisco stage since the summer of love, when she performed with at the Venetian Room with The Supremes. For the first time since Nixon was in office, the music superstar is sending her belted-18-number-one-hits-and-sold-100-million-records voice into our stratosphere.

She’s Billboard magazine’s Female Entertainer of the Century, a Guinness world record holder, an Academy Award-nominated actor, and she graces two stars on Hollywood’s Walk Of Fame.
Suffice it to say, she’s a legend and she’s playing here.
