The legendary Diana Ross returns to Milwaukee this summer.

Living Motown legend Diana Ross adds Riverside date

That's right, Milwaukee, a living legend of Motown will be back in our arms again as Diana Ross performs Sunday, July 14 at the Riverside Theater, 116 W. Wisconsin Ave., at 7 :30 p.m.

The show is part of Ross' Diamond Diana Celebration marking her 75th birthday.

One of the founding members of The Supremes, along with Mary Wilson and the late Florence Ballard, Ross later went on to a successful solo career, which included acting roles in "The Wiz" and the Billie Holiday biopic, "Lady Sings the Blues."

In 2007, Ross was feted by the Kennedy Center Honors in Washington, D.C., and five years later, the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences gave her its highest honor, the GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2016, President Barack Obama gave Ross the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the most prestigious civilian award given to a U.S. citizen.

Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. show go on sale at noon on Friday, April 5. Details here.
