Neil Diamond is one of the most successful and prolific singer/songwriters of all time. His songs (whether recorded by him or other artists) have become an essential part of the American pop music songbook. Nearly four decades after entering the music business, he remains unchallenged as one of the rock era's greatest live solo performers. He is a true original.
Now Neil Diamond is coming to PBS. Taped in Dublin in July 2002, NEIL DIAMOND: SPECIAL MOMENTS IN CONCERT FROM IRELAND is a rousing one-hour music special featuring concert highlights from one of Diamond's sold-out shows. The television special features performances of some of his most beloved hits, including "Sweet Caroline," "America," "September Morn," and "Cracklin' Rosie." From the opening strains of "America," Diamond is greeted by a wildly cheering Irish audience, including Ireland's Prime Minister at the time, Bertie Ahern.
