A Recreation of One of the Greatest Live Albums of All Time
Celebrating the legendary recording “Hot August Night”, PETER BYRNE brings Neil Diamond to you together with the Orchestra of Ireland a 30-piece symphony orchestra.
It is over 50 years since Neil Diamond stepped on stage at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles with a symphony orchestra and recorded what is still known today as one of the greatest epic live albums of all time. Now that album will be re-created in its original format by Peter Byrne and the RTE Concert Orchestra.
Featuring classic songs Crunchy Granola Suite, Cherry Cherry, Sweet Caroline and I am I said…see the same spontaneous display of energy and sensuality of Neil diamond with the superb talents of Peter Byrne. Peter’s capacity to recreate Neil Diamond to a standard that Neil himself has endorsed on many occasions hearing Peter’s tribute. Neil Diamond recently announced retirement from live performing due to illness and many of his fans both in Australia and worldwide were devastated and saddened at the news, so Peter decided he will salute 50 years of his music with some special moments in the show. This is as real as Neil could be…
Peter reenacts every song from the album as Diamond recorded it in 1972. After sell out shows in Australia over the last 25 years and Peter’s last sell out tour of Ireland in 2022 in his home town of Dublin in the National Concert Hall with the RTE Concert Orchestra, the 2023 tour will also take in Castlebar on 19th August with The Orchestra of Ireland at The Royal Theatre.
“….the day I see a better Diamond, will be the day the man himself appears on stage…
