On #FLOSFRIDAY we reminisce fondly on the Former Ladies of The Supremes' 33 years together. Today we are going back to the summer of 1998! The Former Ladies of The Supremes (Scherrie Payne and Lynda Laurence with Freddi Poole) performed in Las Vegas as part of the "Dancing In The Streets" show alongside fellow Motown acts The Contours, The Originals, Kim Weston, & Martha Reeves and the Vandellas. The show was presented by Mickey Stevenson and hosted by comedian Paul Mooney at The Las Vegas Hilton Casino showroom July 23-28 1998.
A few nights into the run Diana Ross made a surprise appearance at the show. During the Former Ladies of The Supremes' performance the Ladies introduced Ms. Ross in the audience to a thunderous applause. After the show backstage Diana was complimentary of the Ladies' performance and happily posed for photos with everyone.
Enjoy there rare photos from our personal collection!
