Neil Diamond announces NZ concert

Neil Diamond is returning to New Zealand in 2018, to perform at the Mission Estate Winery Concert.

The 'Sweet Caroline' hitmaker is one of the most popular musicians in the world, with more than 135 million records sold, as well as Grammy and a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame honours among his many accolades.

Diamond will perform at the Napier venue as part of his 50 Year Anniversary World Tour, which saw him playing several shows across North America this year.

"Neil Diamond is more than just a music icon," says promoter Michael Rapino of Live Nation. "His singular artistry and talent has left an indelible mark on American culture and has helped shape the sound of popular music for five decades."

The Mission Estate Winery Concert is scheduled for Saturday, March 17, 2018. Tickets go on sale to the general public on October 28.
