Had a great time last night at the Diana Ross concert. She sounded great. Overall the crowd was enthusiastic with mainly the center floor area standing for most of the show. There were a couple of hickups though. During the opening number “I’m Coming Out” Miss Ross seemed to forget the lyrics to the song. She also never really spoke to the crowd i’ve never been to a Diana Ross concert before so maybe that’s just her thing. The show itself was pretty short about an hour and twenty minutes.
The closing number was “I Will Survive” with no real encore she just came back out and sing it some more. There wre numerous costume changes throughout the show and when it ended she just walked off the stage without saying goodnight thanks for coming just nothing. I was a bit let down with the merchadise there was a biography book for sale and a program from the “I Love You” tour and one t-shirt. There were many songs from The Supremes era and mostly her Motown songs nothing from the RCA era except “Why Do Fools Fall In Love”. She did surprise me by doing “Ease On Down The Rad” from “The Wiz” wasn’t expecting that one another highlight and my personal favorite was “Love Child”.
At one point a man approached the stage to give her flowers but she ignored him so he layed them on the edge of the stage. Diana then said don’t bring me anything unless it’s diamonds.
All in all a fun and interesting show.
