Forever Diamond starring Peter Byrne
Sat 18 November at 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Rock’n’roll hall of fame and Grammy award-winner, Neil Diamond, is a phenomenon who gives truly special and personal shows that legions of fans return to see again and again. A style that transcends music fads by consistently touching people of all ages and interests. The personal and magical interaction Diamond has on stage with an audience is legendary, breaking all box office records wherever he performs.
This is your opportunity to experience that same spontaneous display of energy and sensuality with the superb talents of internationally renowned Peter Byrne and his award-winning international production, Forever Diamond, a show performing Neil Diamonds greatest hits spanning over three decades, in an uncanny portrayal that has to be seen to be believed.
Come and hear all the great hits such as – Sweet Caroline, Song Sung Blue, I am I Said, Cherry Cherry, Beautiful Noise, Cracklin Rosie, Crunchy Cranola Suite, Holly Holy, Solitary Man and many, many more.
Peter Byrne’s capacity to recreate Neil Diamond to a standard which impressed Diamond’s pianist on his last Australian tour says it all. Tom Hensley gave Peter a resounding nod of approval after seeing his Diamond tribute.
Irishman Byrne’s singing voice is eerie in its likeness to the megastar and providing the impetus for Byrne’s performance is a relentless pursuit to raise his Diamond act to a level that the man himself would endorse.
