Diana Ross coming to the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg




The Vegas-friendly vibe of the revitalized Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg just keeps growing.

Vintage diva Diana Ross will perform there on Feb. 24. Tickets are $65-$100, and they go onsale at noon Friday (12/9). Click here.

The Supremes singer most recently passed through Tampa Bay in November 2010, at Ruth Eckerd Hall. Sean Daly was there, and he called her performance "divacious, in every sense of the word": 

As she showed over the course of 24 hits and 80 short but fun minutes, the divacious 66-year-old has retained that girl-group curl to her incandescent pipes. She looked fit and fabu in five different ridiculous costumes, all ranging from taffeta eruptions to sparkly 'splosions. And that voluminous pyramid of hair (I want to believe it's real, okay?) still frames a gorgeous, age-defying face.

Sounds like a fun show. Click here for details.
