Musician and singer Bob Drury appears as Neil Diamond in the show The Neil Diamond Story: The Life of a Legend in Song, which can be seen at Derby’s Guildhall Theatre on Wednesday, April 8.
In what has been described as ‘more than just tribute show’ Bob will trace the astonishing career of the legendary Neil Diamond, from his early days as a struggling songwriter in New York’s so-called Tin Pan Alley through various career highlights in the 70s, 80s and 90s before bringing the story bang up to date with material from Neil’s recent albums.
As well as featuring many blockbuster hits such as America, Beautiful Noise, Love On The Rocks, Forever In Blue Jeans and Sweet Caroline the show will include ‘unplugged’ elements reflecting Neil
Diamond’s acoustic roots and recent acoustic projects.
The show will play in theatres throughout the country, bringing ‘multi-media’ features to the stage with voice-overs and subtle video sequences to augment the stage action and help tell the remarkable story of the life of this modern day icon.
Bob said: “I’ve been working with Neil Diamond’s songs for about eight years now and have had a great time presenting his amazing music to audiences all over the UK and overseas.
The show starts at 7.30pm. Ticket prices are £15 and the box office is on 01332 255800
