Ross’ time in the music industry stretches all the way back to the 1960s, when she and the Supremes produced hits including “Come See About Me” and “You Can’t Hurry Love.” She became a solo star following her run with the Supremes, releasing classic tracks such as “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” “Endless Love,” and “I’m Coming Out” throughout the 1970s and '80s.
Ross’s latest solo album, Diana Ross Sings Songs From The Wiz, was released in 2015. That year was also the last time she played Philadelphia, performing a show at the Mann in Sept. 2015. That appearance was also part of Ross’ “The Name of Love” tour.
Ross’ set that year included 18 tracks, featuring major hits including “Stop! In the Name of Love,” “Baby Love,” and a cover of Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive,” among others, according to live music archive site Setlist.fm.
