Live Nation Proudly Present Neil Diamond at Phones 4U Arena, Manchester
The word legend is thrown around a lot in the music industry, however I don’t think many will disagree that American singer, songwriter and musician Neil Diamond is more than welcome in that category. Having sold over 125 million album copies worldwide and being voted the third most successful adult contemporary artist of all time behind only Elton John and Barbra Streisand, he remains one of the most popular artists of all time.
Starting his music career in the 60’s, Diamond progressed through the last five decades with a plethora of hugely successful releases, with 32 albums and 10 number one singles under his belt. The 1980’s album ‘The Jazz Singer’, which was the soundtrack to the feature film Diamond starred in, was probably the singers most popular album, however aside from this LP’s massive 5 platinum certifications, the majority of his other albums have all picked up gold and platinum discs since their releases.
On October 21st, Neil Diamond’s newest album ‘Melody Road’ was released on Capitol Records, containing 12 brand new solo tracks, already being described as “one of the very finest (albums) in his singular body of work”. Revered producers Jacknife Lee and Don Was have co-produced the album that will also contain a pull out with guitar chords and lyrics for those who want to have a go at playing this brand new selection of Diamond greats.
The new album will be followed by a worldwide tour that will kick off in America at the beginning of 2015, with dates all over the US including at The Hollywood Bowl, Seattle’s Key Arena and Denver’s Pepsi Center. The tour will then be jetting over to the UK where shows will be held in London, Glasgow, and Birmingham and of course, here at Manchester’s Phones 4U Arena on Thursday the 9th of July. With only a handful of UK shows scheduled for this world tour, we are expecting demand to be very high for all of the gigs up and down the country, so don’t wait to get your tickets.
