A RECREATION OF ONE OF THE GREATEST LIVE ALBUMS OF ALL TIME
Celebrating the 45th Anniversary of the legendary album, Hot August Night, PETER BYRNE brings Neil Diamond to you, together with his world class 30 piece symphony orchestra.
This year marks 45 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 in a national tour by Peter Byrne and the Sydney International Orchestra and Canberra Symphony 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.
Over the last 20 years Peter has thrilled audiences around Australia paying tribute to Hot August Night at Sydney’s State Theatre, Darling Harbor Convention Centre, Burswood Casino, Adelaide Festival Theatre and at the Twilight at Taronga series with electrifying performances. With an incredible 30-piece symphony orchestra, Peter performs every song from the album as Diamond recorded it in 1972. Plus, this year features a special tribute to The Jazz Singer album.
‘….the day I see a better Diamond, will be the day the man himself appears on stage…’ (Adrian Revere, The Mercure)
