Diana Ross is heading to the UK in 2021
By Classic Pop | October 26, 2020
The legendary Diana Ross is set to make two appearances here in the UK next summer – one at Cornwall’s Eden Project and the second at the Lytham Festival in Lancashire.
The soul superstar had been due to play an Eden Session this past June, before the Coronavirus pandemic caused the cancellation of most live performances. Now, however, the concert has been rescheduled for 29 June 2021.
Rita Broe, Managing Director of Eden Sessions Ltd, said: “We have been so looking forward to welcoming Diana to the Eden Project and it is wonderful to be able to announce that this hugely-anticipated concert can take place next summer.”
Diana Ross is, of course, one of the most successful recording artists and entertainers of all time. From her landmark solo career to the early days as the leader of The Supremes, the superstar singer has helped shape the sound of popular music.
Ross has an astounding career total of 70 hit singles, including Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, I’m Coming Out, Stop! In The Name of Love, Upside Down, I’m Still Waiting and Chain Reaction.
After her Eden gig, Ross will join Lionel Richie, Lewis Capaldi, Duran Duran and Snow Patrol for the Lytham Festival, Lancashire’s biggest live music show which runs from 30 June through to 4 July 2021.
Diana Ross is the fourth rescheduled Eden Session confirmed for the summer of 2021.
The Lionel Richie concert takes place on 9 June 2021, My Chemical Romance will play on 15 June 2021, and The Script perform on 14 July 2021.
Last year’s epic Eden Sessions line-up saw Stereophonics, Nile Rodgers & Chic, Liam Gallagher, The Chemical Brothers and Kylie Minogue (two nights) play the Eden stage.
