Once upon a time, in the 80's I went to a Neil Diamond concert..
And I loved it!

I love Neil!
A friend of mine is also a big fan and we've seen him in concert about 5 times.
One time around 15 years ago we had front row centre seats and I was contemplating if I would be able to make the leap up onto the stage or not.
My friend talked me out of it telling me I'd probably get kicked out and miss the whole concert...so I ditched the plan.
Ha! That same tour he ran off with an Aussie woman...I should have given it a shot and had I not listened to my stupid friend, my pea-name might be "Mrs Diamond" now!!

Twice upon a time I went to Neil Diamond concerts in the 80s.

At one, we had seats behind and above the stage. My sis and I were on our feet, leaning over the railing and clapping and cheering. He turned around and waved and said, "I see you up there!"

So, Neil has actually spoken to me!

Englebert Humperdink also squeezed my hand at one of his concerts in the 80s.

Love me some Neil Diamond, I have been to 3 of his concerts and he sure knows how to entertain an audience.

Everybody sing along!

Where it began,
I can't begin to knowin'
But then I know it's growing strong
Was in the spring
And spring became the summer
Who'd have believed you'd come along.

Hands, touchin' hands
Reachin' out, touchin' me touchin' you
Sweet Caroline
Good times never seemed so good
I've been inclined
To believe they never would
But now I, look at the night
And it don't seem so lonely
We fill it up with only two.

And when I hurt,
Hurtin' runs off my shoulders
How can I hurt when I'm with you
Warm, touchin' warm
Reachin' out, touchin' me touchin' you
Sweet Caroline
Good times never seemed so good
I've been inclined,
To believe they never would
Oh, no, no

Sweet Caroline
Good times never seemed so good
Sweet Caroline,
I believe they never could
Sweet Caroline.........

You know Trollie, now that song is stuck in my head. You could have at least started Forever in Blue Jeans.

I have also seen Neil in concert a couple times.

Love Neil Diamond! I've never been to a concert and that is on my bucket list. Not much chance I'll get to go now, since my retirement budget doesn't allow for such luxuries.

Pack up the babies and grab the old ladies and everyone goes.

I had a day care child that used to come in almost every morning singing Sweet Caroline. He listen to Neil Diamond with his dad on the ride to daycare everyday.

I saw him in the 70s AND in the 80s.

I loved his music - still have plenty of it on my phone.
