Superstar Diana Ross and the popular pop band Maroon 5 will take the stage during the Krewe of Endymion’s “Extravaganza” party at the Caesars Superdome, following the Feb. 26 Carnival parade. If parades and mega parties are allowed to take place next year, that is.
As lead singer with the Supremes, Ross produced an unparalleled string of hits from “Stop in the Name of Love,” to “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” to “Touch Me in the Morning,” then followed with a solo career fueled with tunes such as “Endless Love.”
Ross and the members of Maroon 5 follow in the footsteps of scores of musicians, actors and other notables who have lent their celebrity sizzle to the Endymion parade and/or afterparty. The list includes Alice Cooper (1976), Fats Domino (1978), Dolly Parton (1988), Britney Spears (2000), Kevin Costner (2008), John Goodman (1990), Steven Segal (1993), Chef Emeril Lagasse (1999), and Tom Benson (2010).
According to an Endymion spokesman, neither Ross nor members of Maroon 5 will ride in the parade.
