WORLD BEAT: 'Supremes,' Ross to Tour




NEW YORK -- Diana Ross, meet the Supremes. The Detroit-born diva announced plans Tuesday for a new U.S. tour with "the Supremes,'' Lynda Laurence and Scherrie Payne, who actually joined the group after Ross' departure 30 years ago.


"The reason we're doing this is for our fans," Ross told a packed news conference.


Ross was adamant that this was not a reunion tour. Original Supreme Mary Wilson was approached for the tour, but a financial deal could not be worked out, according to the promoter.


The third member of the original Supremes, Florence Ballard, died in 1976.
