Mary Wilson on Possible Supremes Reunion

The title to the 1969 hit “Someday We’ll Be Together” could take a whole new meaning, especially when it comes to the Supremes.

Mary Wilson, the group’s longest-reigning member, recently spoke with Associated Press about being open to a reunion tour, with former bandmate Diana Ross. This comes following the 50th anniversary of the group’s number one hit “Where Did Our Love Go”, released on June 17th 1964. In the interview, Wilson says she is open to the idea of reuniting with Ross, but only if the time is right, and finding that time is difficult given the circumstances, including Ross’ superstardom, the 1976 death of Florence Ballard, and recent health issues of Cindy Birdsong (Ballard’s replacement). So right now, fans would have to stay posted to see what happens.

Meanwhile in the interview, Wilson talked fondly of the Supremes’ first number one hit “Where Did Our Love Go”, as they were initially not too crazy of the song, but trusted co-writer Eddie Holland nonetheless, as he said this would be a hit. And while on tour, they learned the song would become just that, becoming the first of twelve number one hits achieved throughout the 1960s. She also talked about the impact the Supremes had on today’s female artists, as well as her long tenure in the group, which lasted from it’s formation in 1959, to breakup in 1977.

If in fact a reunion was to occur, it won’t be the first time. The Supremes last reunited for the Return to Love tour in 2000, but it consisted of Ross, and two members from the 1970s (Scherrie Payne and Lynda Laurence), and that tour bombed.
