Diana Ross brings her summer tour to Wolf Trap (1551 Wolf Trap Road, Vienna, Va.) Wednesday at 8 p.m.

Early dates have drawn mixed reviews for the Motown legend. A show at the Hollywood Bowl last weekend found her with almost exactly the same set list she used for outings in 2010 and 2011 and a mere 70-minute set though the hits-heavy romp clearly delighted the sold-out crowd.

Admission is $48 for in-house and $30 for lawn seats. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit

  • The woman’s nearly 70 yrs old. How long of a set are you expecting? If she’s going to remember all the lyrics, yes, the set is going to be nearly identical to sets she’s done in the past. Give the ol’ gal a break.

  • A couple of years ago she was suppose to do a concert with Mary Wilson
    It did not work out because she wanted to be paid more then Mary. Mary wasn't having it and dropped out. Diana tried doing the show alone which did not work. I hope the diva has better luck. We will see.
