On July 21, 1983, Diana Ross put on a concert in New York's Central Park for a Showtime special. During the opening of the show, the skies opened up and a torrential downpour soaked the crowd. Ross continued on until the show was shut down due to safety concerns. The next night, she was back again and put on a landmark concert.

For the first time, this show will be released on DVD by Shout Factory and not only do you get the full show of July 22, but they are also including all of the July 21 show that was put on before it was shut down.

Directed by Steve Binder, who originally worked with Diana Ross when he directed 1964's iconic rock concert film The T.A.M.I. Show, when Miss Ross was still with the legendary Supremesm Diana Ross: Live In Central Park is a close-up look at one of the greatest entertainers of the past half-century at the top of her game.

Recalling that fated first concert, Diana remembers: 'The entire park was wall-to-wall people. It was an electrical storm. It was alive with energy.an incredible moment of my career. The rain came down like sheets of shimmering glass. I think about that day that turned into night. I wasn't afraid, even though many were afraid for me. I just wanted the thousands that came to the performance to be safe. My dream came pouring down.'

In addition to the DVD release on May 15, the main program of Diana Ross: Live In Central Park will also begin airing nationally on stations subscribing to American Public Television's Premium Service, bearing the special's original title, Diana Ross: For One And For All.
