Neil Diamond set to shine
at Omaha’s Civic Auditorium
One of the premier crooners of
the 40-and-over set, Neil Diamond
has long been pleasing audiences as a
songwriter and performer.
Tonight, he’ll bring some magic
to Omaha’s Civic Auditorium.
In the 1960s, Diamond estab
lished himself primarily as a song
writer, penning tunes for several
other artists, including the televised
faux-band The Monkees. He eventu
ally broke into his own as a singer and
multi-instrumentalist, turning self
written songs such as “Shilo,”
“Solitary Man,” “Red, Red Wine”
and “Girl, You’ll Be a Woman Soon”
into instantly recognizable classics.
After the ’60s, Diamond’s output
dropped somewhat in quality,
although he did manage a second
breakthrough with the soundtrack to
a remake of “The Jazz Singer,” in
which he also starred.
Younger music fans nowadays
may consider Diamond a schmaltzy
relic of pop-music flamboyance and
overly glittered show business, but
his early works remain as high
quality reminders of what ’60s pop
could be - and it could be pretty darn
Diamond will take the stage
tonight at 8. Tickets for the show are
$40 and are available through
