Diana Ross sells out Mahaffey in St. Petersburg

From her star role with the greatest of girl groups, The Supremes in the 1960s, to her numerous solo hits that spanned from the 1970s to late '90s, Ross established herself as the ultimate pop diva.

She also won a Golden Globe (and Oscar nomination) for her poignant portrayal of Billie Holiday in the '72 film "Lady Sings the Blues" plus a Tony Award later the same decade for her one-woman show, "An Evening with Diana Ross."

And at age 67, Ross, who was finally honored earlier this month at the Grammys, remains a top concert draw, selling out every seat of the 2,031 capacity Mahaffey in St. Pete at $65-$100 per.
