PostSubject: Does anyone like Neil Diamond?   Thu Oct 09, 2008 1:42 pm

I have tickets to see Neil Diamond on November 4th. This will be my fourth time seeing him in concert and I've loved every one of them. He was to appear in Green Bay in August but had to cancel due to laryngitus. Then it was rescheduled for September and then rescheduled again to this date. He has promised to make it up to his fans in Green Bay when he takes the stage. I for one can't wait!!! Can you believe it I love somebody other than Dean?? batEyes

And so I don't have a stressful day on the 4th (it's election day) I am voting absentee ballot. Now hows that for dedication!!

GO VOTE!! Cheer

My sister was a huge Neil fan when we were kids, and she got me into him, too. Here's one of his songs that you don't hear too often, but I've always loved it.

I LOVE Neil!! He was on American Idol this year and we talked about him over there in that thread. "Hello Again" is one of my all time faves, as well as "America". Congrats on getting to see him again! Thumbsup I'd LOVE to see him in concert!

(Another thing....a lot of 'older' singers don't sound as good as they once did---their voices change as they age. I was very impressed with the quality of Neil's voice on American Idol. He's still go it! Applause ).

Thanks Rob for the good tune, I am listening to it as I type. I love and know just about every Neil Diamond song. The first song that got me interested in him was (Ok I am gonna give my age away here) "Forever in blue jeans" when I was in high school.

The man is old enough to be my father, but I love his music....

Amy I too saw him on American Idol... I love that show and I loved Diamond week. Neil difinitely has one of those distinguishable voices.

Oh and Rhonda thanks for putting that song in my head for the rest of the night buddy!!!

Now I need to check into this Saving Silerman movie that Susie is talking about.



:peace:

My friend's mom was convinced that song was called "For Reverend Bluejeans." Laughing

I LOVE Neil Diamond too! The Jazz Singer was a fantastic movie and every one of the songs in the movie were first class. Wish I was going to the concert with you. Hope you have a great night. You've waited long enough for it!

Maureen, believe it or not when I was in high school I dragged my little sister Patty to see the Jazz singer movie 12 times. I almost had the lines memorized and it should come as no surprise to you then that I currently have this movie in my dvd home liabrary.

The concert is less than a week away (election day tuesday) and so far no cancellations. I honestly believe this time its a go. I am starting to get giddy!! But I find it hard to get "Reverend Bluejeans" out of my head. ROTFL

You guys crack me up.

After looking through that site, I would imagine it must've been a pretty large congregation............ grinsmiley

Wow---that's a lot of people who thought it was Reverend Bluejeans! ROFL!! I love some of the explanations for why people thought it was that...

I still can't help but sing, "The Reverend in bluejeans, babe!" :haha:

Lori, only two more days!!! Have fun! Thumbsup

Rhonda that site is way too funny. I must admit I probably have invented a couple new lyrics myself to other songs that I hear so I can personally see how that happens.

Well the concert is tomorrow night and so far no more cancellations. I will think of you all sitting at home in the evening watching the election results while I am screaming myself silly in the bleacher seats of the Rusch center watching Neil Diamond shake his grove thing. :woohooo:

Oh...and Amy I will think of you when he sings Reverend Bluejeans. :sing:

Woops... I guess I am lagging in my review department huh?

I had a fantastic time as you all can imagine. The Rusch center here in Green Bay seats about 10,000 so all the seats weren't really that bad. Ours were located just off the right corner of the stage and Neil we knew from past concerts works the whole stage. He even sat and and did a guitar solo right in front of us.

He sang lots of his old songs and mixed in a few of his newer ones. I was so amazed by the diverse group of people sitting around me. From a young couple (now young is at least 10 years younger than myself..lol) to a group of older ladies sitting just behind us. I had to chuckle numerous times when Neil thanked us for coming and the ladies behind me yelled back "No... thank you Neil". Ahhh... to be a groupie.... I must say when he finally sang Forever in Blue Jeans it brought a smile to my face.

The show was awesome and I am already waiting for the fifth time to see him in concert. Below is a picture from our local paper. (Green Bay Press Gazette)

Yeah, I'm happy for you, Lorrie! How long did the concert last? And about how many songs did Neil do?

Hey Rob,

Sorry I'm late getting back to you but life has been so busy. Neils concert lasted just under two hours. On the Green Bay press gazette website I was able to also find a play list of the songs to which Neil sang. Here were his selections for the night

Set list
“Holly Holy’’
“Beautiful Noise’’
“Love on the Rocks’’
“Play Me’’
“Cherry, Cherry’’
“Home Before Dark’’
“Don’t Go There’’
“Pretty Amazing Grace’’
“Crunchy Granola Suite’’
“Done Too Soon’’
“Brooklyn Roads’’
“I Am I Said’’
“Solitary Man’’
“Forever in Blue Jeans’’
“Sweet Caroline’’
“You Don’t Bring Me Flowers’’
“I’m a Believer’’
“Man of God’’
“Hell Yeah’’
“America’’ (encore)
“Brother Love’s Traveling Salvation Show’’ (encore)

As you will notice the last two songs were encore songs. Why do recording artists do that? Walk off stage and leave the crowd standing and applauding only to beg for them to come back for a couple more songs. It's funny but if my memory serves me correctly I believe Neils encore songs for the other three concerts I went to were the exact two songs...lol

I love the song "America" very powerful!!

Lorrie

Thanks for the list, Holly. It's very interesting!

I'm guessing he's been closing with Brother Love since... oh, about 1969. grinsmiley
