With an extraordinary career in the spotlight that spans over five decades, the pop-culture icon will bring her timeless music, sparkle and glamour to the Festival’s 50th anniversary.
“To all my fans across the world, this is my tribute to you,” said Ms Ross. “Every concert feels like a private party, I can see your eyes and feel your hearts. I’m coming to Glastonbury, with love.”
Said Glastonbury co-organiser Emily Eavis: “I am delighted to say that one of the all-time greats, the wonderful Diana Ross, is coming to Glastonbury to play the Sunday legend slot on the Pyramid next year.”
Ms Ross is considered one of the most successful recording artists and entertainers of all time, with more than 50 number one hits around the globe and 100 million records sold.
In 2016, President Obama said about Ms. Ross, “she exudes grace, her influence is inescapable,” as he presented her with the Medal of Freedom Honor, the most prestigious award given to a US citizen. The National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences acknowledged her incredible career with its highest honor, The Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012.
The upcoming performance marks Ms. Ross’ first live appearance in the UK since 2008.
