Stumbling to find a light switch in the dark

Neil Diamond ROCKS MSG!

He then proceeds to blow the roof off the dump, last night night I caught the Neil Diamond concert at Madison Square Garden. He is currently on tour in support of his new album Home Before Dark, which is great. It is a collaboration with producer Rick Ruben who previously worked with Johnny Cash on his final albums which also were great. Home Before Dark is Neil Diamond showing his chops as a song writer with a simple style and melody, the album can be infectious. 

    I bought the tickets a few months back as a present for my mom and dad, but I am also a big Neil Diamond fan so it was something I could share with them and I have also gotten my girlfriend in to Neil as well. We all had a great time, there was no opening act it was just straight Neil Diamond who appears on stage in all black suit with some sequins playing his awesome hits for two and half hours! The people went nuts dancing in the aisles and screaming for more. So what does Neil Diamond play for his concert you ask?
