Last time I heard his voice live, it was horribly offkey, weak and uneven. My guess is this was just a lipsync situation.

I believe true emotion Tally...Love him or hate him its Neil Diamond...no need for career revival...his voice could sound like two cats fighting and he would still sell out every concert by name alone.

I went to one of his concerts in the Hot August Night era. It was just shy of a religious experience.

I dunno, I just think it was odd......song is a bit upbeat for such an occasion...... Maybe it's just me.....nice of him to show respect though....

DILF..."Sweet Caroline" is a Fenway tradition that is always played between the top and bottom of the 8th inning. Thought it was pretty cool of him to show up and do the song in person for the fans there.

Im not a huge Neil Diamond fan but there is a Neil Diamond cover band called "Diamonds are Forever" that always play the "Concert in the Park" every summer near my house...They get the biggest turnout and it is pretty entertaining to see.

Many many years ago, I saw Neil Diamond live in Atlanta with my former beloved. There was a person in front of us who was complaining about their seat location. The ushers, who were apparently employed by him as well, notified Mr. Diamond. He sent money out to repay the person for their seat and had them escorted out of the building. I think that I would probably like him in real life!
