What You'll Get
Many famous musicians begin their careers as songwriters for other acts, just as many famous politicians begin their careers as the president’s baby-kissing double. Respect performers who have paid their dues with this deal to see Neil Diamond at the US Airways Center. For $32, you get one G-Pass granting reserved seating in sections 203–206 and 216–221 on Wednesday, August 29, at 8 p.m. (up to a $63.50 value, including all fees). Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, our customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their voucher at will cal.
Neil Diamond was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011. That might be a little hard to believe if you’ve turned on a radio or visited a karaoke bar in the past few decades: “Forever in Blue Jeans,” “Cherry, Cherry,” and “Girl, You’ll Be a Woman Soon” feel like they’ve always been part of the American pop-music landscape. Their timeless quality makes sense when you consider Diamond’s path to superstardom, which intertwines with a number of foundational music traditions. Having first tried his hand at Everly Brothers–inspired songwriting in high school, he dropped out of college to work as a songwriter in the Brill Building. When The Monkees struck gold with the Diamond-penned “I’m a Believer,” he escaped the song factory and its noxious piano fumes and started a solo career that snowballed to Elvis-like proportions. His career has since sold 100 million records, garnered a Grammy and a Golden Globe, and exhausted several sequin mines.
For this rare North American tour, Diamond plays nothing but the classics in celebration of his recently released greatest-hits collection. A master showman with a contagious love of the game, he deploys his distinctive rugged baritone and thousand-yard smile to sell hits such as “Cracklin’ Rosie” and “Sweet Caroline.”
