Grammy Award winner and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member Neil Diamond has performed to fans around the world and now he is bringing his 50th Anniversary Tour to council's Sunshine Coast Stadium on March 22, 2018.
 
The tour will celebrate Neil's incomparable 50-year career and hits spanning decades such as Cherry Cherry, Holly Holy, Cracklin' Rosie, Song Sung Blue, You Don't Bring Me Flowers, Solitary Man, Sweet Caroline, Love on the Rocks, Desiree and Shilo.

Neil's universally beloved songs – as well as his charismatic and open-hearted performances of them – continue to make him an international force both as a record maker and a live entertainer.
 
Mayor Mark Jamieson said council had been working hard to attract live music events to the Sunshine Coast and was delighted to welcome the American perform to our region.
 
"Neil has performed to millions of fans around the world and it's exciting for all of us that he has put us on his world tour schedule," Mayor Jamieson said.
 
"This is our first international music act at Sunshine Coast Stadium and there is no doubt it will be a fantastic venue for the Neil Diamond concert.

"With the recent improvements we've made to the stadium, we hope to be attract many more live music events to follow on from Neil in the future.

"Tickets will be on sale soon and I encourage the Sunshine Coast community to help us break our stadium's attendance record."
 
TEG DAINTY president and CEO Paul Dainty said he was thrilled to bring international artists of Neil Diamond's calibre to the Sunshine Coast for the very first time.

"I've just seen Neil perform his 50 Year Anniversary show in the UK and it is filled with wall to wall hits for over two hours," Mr Dainty said.

"It will be all hits, all Neil, all night – and will be a lifetime highlight for Neil Diamond fans.

"I hope this will be one of many artists we bring to the Sunshine Coast in years to come."

Neil Diamond's extraordinary career spans five decades and has created defining hits for generation after generation of loyal fans.

He has sold more than 130 million albums world-wide and has charted 37 Top 40 singles and 16 Top 10 albums.

A Grammy award-winning artist, Diamond is a member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, the Songwriters Hall of Fame and a recipient of the Sammy Cahn Lifetime Achievement Award, one of the highest honours bestowed upon songwriters.

His many other achievements include a Golden Globe Award, 13 Grammy nominations and 2009's NARAS MusiCares Person of the Year award. In 2011, Diamond received the prestigious Kennedy Center Honor for his lifetime of contributions to American culture.
