It is with great sadness that on Monday we heard the sad news that Neil Diamond had announced the cancellation of his Australian and New Zealand tour. Major news agencies have reported that this was on the advice of his doctors after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Mr. Diamond has said that he will continue to write, record and release new music which is very exciting for fans everywhere, ourselves included.
The cast and crew of Hello Again-The Story of Neil Diamond would like to send Mr. Diamond and his family love and best wishes at this time.
A huge ‘Thank You’ to the wonderful people of Torquay for coming to see us at the beautiful ‘Princess Theatre.’ A huge turn out of Neil Diamond fans sang and danced the night way with us, you were fab. Looking forward to seeing you all again next year.
We are extremely delighted and honoured to announce that the show Hello Again Neil Diamond is now working with the fabulous team @ Mark Lundquist Concerts for UK/ European dates.
Mark Lundquist and Darren Bazzoni (The Show’s Producer) have a long history of working together, they both toured for many years together in Legendary Motown band Cliff Bennett & The Rebel Rousers.
“I am extremely pleased and honoured that Mark and his team have added our show to his roster. We are in great company, as Mark’s Roster includes Gary Brooker (Procol Harum), Toploader & The Hoosiers inc. Sell Out Theatre show’s, The Johnny Cash Roadshow, T Rextasy, The Blues Brothers Approved and The Simon & Garfunkel Story. This is a huge step forward for the show, I am extremely optimistic for the future.”
In past experiences, and working on numerous theatre shows, they tend to kind of wallow onto the circuit. They then struggle for a couple of years, find their feet, get a regular hardcore following who tell their friends and the whole thing grows organically….until today (Well yesterday to be precise.)
To be sold out one month before an opening night is some feet, which just goes to highlight the power and popularity of one ‘Neil Leslie Diamond.’ Respect would be an understarement, love and adoration would be nearer to the truth, Messiah status would be nearly there.
We were absolutely bowled over to be performing Mr. Diamond’s work to a cheering, standing full house, far more than we could have ever imagined. Thank you so much to everybody who attended in Harlow, Essex yesterday evening and to everybody in ‘The Wings’ who made it happen.
Also, to raise over £2000 for the wonderful work that St.Clare Hospice do is just magical.
Here’s to the 2017 tour !
