The hugely anticipated tour will kick off at Neal S. Blaisdell Center Arena at Honolulu, Hawaii on February 16, 2012. So far, tickets are on sale for nine scheduled dates. Neil Diamond is in the Songwriters Hall of Fame and sure to play many of the hits that got him there including "America", "Cracklin' Rose," "Song Sung Blue" and "Heartlight" as well as many others! This tour is ranked one of the biggest of the 2012 concert year so expect tickets to sell out quickly with only nine shows announced. There is meanwhile no information on whether more dates will be added, but in my opinion, it is highly likely.
Neil Diamond was born on born January 24, 1941, and his career has now spanned five decades since the 1960s. The Billboard Charts consider the American singer/songwriter to be the third most successful adult contemporary artist of all-time, falling behind Barbra Streisand and Elton John. Mr. Diamond was introduced into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1984 and then into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011. He continues to write and produce new songs and albums. The legendary singer/songwriter hails from Brooklyn, New York where he was born and raised.
Neil Diamond's career kicked off in high gear during the 1960s. His first contract in the music business was ""Neil and Jack." An effort to capture the duo performance genre with popular groups such as the Everly Brothers. Neil and longtime school friend Jack Parker went on to record You Are My Love At Last" b/w "What Will I Do" and "I'm Afraid" b/w "Till You've Tried Love." Diamond would eventually sign with Columbia Records later in 1962, but quickly be dropped from the label when his singles never made the Billboard charts. Diamond would spend the next years with a return to songwriting, much done above the legendary Birdland Club in New York City. His efforts would pay off in 1965 when his song "Sunday and Me" hit the Top 20 for the Jay and the Americans recording. Neil Diamond's rise to mainstream popularity would come from a string of hit songs he wrote, which were first covered by the group "The Monkees." The songs included "I'm a Believer", "A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You", "Look Out (Here Comes Tomorrow)", and "Love to Love," all of which Diamond intended to record under his name. The singer/songwriter's career had taken off and soon the biggest names, including Elvis were recording his songs. Diamond would once again be signed to Bert Berns's Bang Records (Atlantic Records) and begin performing live as an opening act, including "The Who" tour. Diamond began feeling constrained by the new label and could get out of the contract in court. He quickly sighed with MCA Records and moved to Los Angeles in 1970 where he began recording the many hit songs he had written and, which were covered.
Neil Diamond concert tickets are on sale now for all 25 stops on the tour. The summer tour is in support of his new greatest hits collection titled "The Very Best of Neil Diamond – The Original Studio Recordings," which is soon to drop. The concerts will hit many popular cities and venues in North America. He will be kicking the tour off early with two shows in February at Neal S. Blaisdell Center – Arena.
