Members of Motown legends The Supremes to perform on Dubai's QE2 in September

They ruled the charts in the 1960s and 1970s, and two of the former members are being joined by a third singer at the Mina Rashid theatre

Two members of the legendary Motown trio The Supremes will perform on the Queen Elizabeth 2 in Dubai's Mina Port on Wednesday September 11 and Thursday September 12, with tickets only costing from Dh180 to Dh200.

Scherrie Payne and Susaye Greene will be joined by Joyce Vincent.

This will not be the first time the group has performed on the 50-year-old cruise liner, but it will be the first time they've stepped on it since it was docked in Dubai.

Diana Ross may be the most famous former member of The Supremes, but Scherrie Payne and Susaye Green are both genuine members of the band, which had eight members in total across its 18 year tenor.

Payne joined The Supremes in 1973, after Diana Ross and Florence Ballard had already left the group; while Susaye Green joined in 1976, joining Payne and original member Mary Wilson in the group. They were members until the band eventually completely split up in 1977.

The trio performing in Dubai created a new group in 1986 called Former Ladies of The Supremes, who sometimes just go by The Former Supremes. The trio that will perform in Dubai have been touring the world together for three decades.

Here they are performing in Portugal in 1996:
