Tribute shows come and go in and out of vogue, much like the artists that they emulate. A select few however, are just so good that they become a sensation in their own right, becoming a must-see, and not just for fans of the original artist.
Hello Again - The Story of Neil Diamond most certainly falls into this category. It's no surprise when you consider the subject matter: one Neil Leslie Diamond. Following his early years as an in-house songwriter at the legendary Brill Building, he scored his first solo hit in 1966. 50 years and over 125 million records later, his story is carved deep in the annals of music history.
Born with an uncannily similar timbre to his idol and an exceptional guitar player, Brooklyn Creed carries huge expectation on his shoulders and rises to the challenge supremely. He and the brilliant Salvation Band hand-pick and master specific live and studio versions of Diamond’s performances to ensure absolute authenticity. Evocative imagery, video and narration enhance the magic, as the show takes you on a musical journey through Neil Diamond’s glittering career. From the 60’s to the present day you’ll soon find yourself singing along to all the hits including Sweet Caroline, Cracklin’ Rosie, Beautiful Noise, You Don’t Bring Me Flowers, Forever In Blue Jeans, Song Sung Blue, Hello Again, Love On The Rocks, I Am I Said, America and many many more.
