Neil Diamond announces four UK gigs
Date Posted: 15/02/11
Neil Diamond will entertain his UK fans later this year after unveiling a number of performances around the UK.
He is set to sing some of his old classics in front of those booking hotels near The O2 arena on Saturday July 9th, after previously playing in Birmingham, Glasgow and Manchester.
The Grammy Award-winning artist, who is known for his songwriting as well as his singing, is also a recipient of the Sammy Cahn Lifetime Achievement Award, which is one of the top honours that musical scribes can receive.
Diamond has sold nearly 130 million records worldwide, and his latest album Dreams featured 14 tracks from other composers in the rock era.
Recently, Diamond turned 70, and celebrated with the news that he will be inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.
"I think it's great. I'm happy that they recognised me and my work. Any club that has Chuck Berry and Little Richard and The Everly Brothers is a club that I want to be a part of," he said.
