Neil Diamond Returns to Newcastle.
The man, the legend, Neil Diamond comes back to the joy of millions of UK fans. Following on from the success of his outdoor shows for 2005, Neil Diamond will now play the Metro Radio Arena on Tuesday 24th May 2005.
Over the course of a career that kicked in with the adolescent rush of ‘Cherry Cherry’ in 1966 and crescendoed more than three decades later with his most successful world tour ever, spanning 2001 and 2002.
Neil Diamond has never failed to delight and surprise his fans with fresh approaches to the music that moves him the most deeply. His concerts are nothing less than communal events that Neil transforms into intimate encounters between himself and the millions who attend those shows from decade to decade, and these special shows will prove just that.
His shows sell out all over the world, he is a Grammy Award winner and above all he is an inspired singer-songwriter. His new album features the No.1 hit he wrote for the Monkees, ‘I’m a Believer’, the powerful duet with Barbra Streisand ‘You Don’t Bring me Flowers’, and hits from his album and movie ‘The Jazz Singer’, ‘America’ and ‘Love On The Rocks’.
Metro Radio Arena’s Corporate and Promotions Executive Gemma Diduca said: - “This fabulous artist has always been a big hit with fans in the North East and with his shows selling out across the UK we would advise patrons to buy early to avoid disappointment.”
Tickets costing £50/£37 go on sale 9am Friday 19th Nov and are available from all usual outlets.
