Tony’s Neil Diamond Experience: Hot August Night
A multimedia live music tribute to Neil’s classic double live album “Hot August Night” recorded at the Greek Theater in 1972!
Neil Diamond is celebrating 50 years in show business with a world tour this year. For the last 10 of those years, I’ve been performing my own tribute to his iconic legacy of song. I shall Neil before you! Along with a six-piece band, we perform a loving tribute to Neil Diamond with equal parts heart and laughter. Musically, the performance is spot on. In fact, Tony Starlight sounds so much like Diamond that fans have remarked, “it’s eerie!”
Whether it’s monologues about the lifestyle of a living legend and the burdens of carrying around such enormous talent, or challenging the audience to perform better, or an all-new take on “You Don’t Bring me Flowers”, no other Diamond tribute is this much fun. And we guarantee it’s the only tribute with simulated figure skating! Here’s the kicker: Even people who don’t like Neil Diamond, like this show! You know what you call people who don’t like Neil Diamond, don’t ya? LIARS!
TONY STARLIGHT USES LIVE MUSICIANS ONLY. What you hear is us. There are no backing “tracks” on this, or any other show at Tony Starlight Showroom.
