Hello Again - The Neil Diamond Songbook Saturday 22 June 2024
Venue:  The Lights     map
Address:  West Street, Andover, Hampshire, SP10 1AH
Telephone:  Box office: 01264 368368
Event:  Hello Again - The Neil Diamond Songbook - 7.30pm - Tribute shows, Homages, Celebrations? There are just so many. Some good, some bad, they come and go in and out of vogue, much like the artist(s) that they are emulating. A very select few however, are just so good, that they become a sensation in their own right, thus becoming a must see, the only show for fans of the original artist. Hello Again A Tribute to of Neil Diamond most certainly falls into this category, with a cast that can proudly boast past credits to include Michael Jackson, Kylie Minogue, Take That, Spice Girls, Bay City Rollers, Freddie Starr, Culture Club, The Drifters and many more, its no surprise that this show has accelerated itself to becoming the talk of theatre land. It's also no surprise, when you consider the subject matter…One Neil Leslie Diamond, born a star on 24th January 1941, in his early years an in-house songwriter at the now legendary Brill Building, scoring his first solo hit in 1966. 50 years and over 125 Million records sold, his ongoing story carved deep in the annals of music history is one that must be told.
