The one and only Neil Diamond announces an exclusive Irish Concert in Dublin’s Croke Park on Saturday 14 June 2008. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 9am.

The Man, The Legend, Neil Diamond comes back to the joy of his millions of Irish fans to play an unmissable fully seated show which has been added onto his World tour.

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 tour to tour, and these special shows will prove just that.

His shows sell out all over the world, he is a Grammy Award winner, but above all Neil is an inspired singer-songwriter.

The Essential Neil Diamond CD is an outstanding collection of 38 classic Neil Diamond songs. Featuring his earliest hits to present day, including the No. 1 hit from 1967 which he wrote for The Monkees, ‘I’m A Believer’, the powerful duet with Barbra Streisand, ‘You Don’t Bring Me Flowers’, the hits from his album & movie ‘The Jazz Singer’, ‘America’ and ‘Love On The Rocks.’

In the opening liner notes to ‘Stages; Performances 1970-2002′ a deluxe six cd box set, Neil Diamond writes; “I will never forget my excitement as I boarded a Tampa, Florida bound flight at LaGuardia airport in New York in 1966, and headed off for the beginnings of an unimagined future. I certainly had no thoughts of where this journey would ultimately take me.” That journey underscores the happy saga of Neil Diamond, one of the most creatively bold -and prolific- singer songwriters to emerge in the rock era.

Neil’s ’12 Songs’ recent studio album has won critical acclaim worldwide, the Rick Rubin produced work takes him back to the very essence of Diamond?s early work, showing what a masterful songwriter and musician he is.

Neil spoke of the forthcoming tour from his studio in the US, where he is currently writing new material:

“The band and I always enjoy our tours of Ireland. I really look forward to making live music again.”
