(NEW ORLEANS, La.) - June 18, 2013 -The Saenger Theatre adds even more star power to its grand opening celebration with music legend Diana Ross performing Wednesday, Oct. 30, at 8 p.m.

"The addition of Diana Ross to our grand opening celebration speaks to our dedication to providing the best in live entertainment for the people of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast to enjoy," said David Skinner, General Manager of the Saenger Theatre. "What better way to celebrate the revitalization of our colorful, creative and culturally rich city than with a spectacular lineup of music and live entertainment."
