Hot August Nights 40th anniversary at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles CA

Los Feliz luxury homes, endre barath

It is hard to believe that it has been forty years since Neil Diamond perform at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles, CA. I just graduated from High School and wished I could have been there.  As a consolation I had bought the Double Album called “Hot August Nights”.

Fast forward from 1972 to 2012 and Neil Diamond was back at the Greek Theater. This time thanks to Diane, I did not miss out.

This time Neil Diamond did not have an opening act band, he was the main attraction. We went on a Hot August night on the 18th, 2012.  By the time the concert started temperatures dropped to mid to high seventies. Neil Diamond was ageless, for a 71 year old he sang and entertained the crowd like when he was in his 30’s.

He did not “talk his songs” as Diane likes to say about entertainers who lost the “voice” he “SANG HIS SONGS”.  The Greek Theater holds about 6000 plus people and the place was filled, not an empty seat, only when people went to dance in the aisles.

He sang for two hours and fifteen minutes and the crowd would have loved him to stay and sing for another two hours or more. He closed with “Sweet Caroline” and the place went wild!

There are some singers who just keep on going and their voice remains timeless and Neil Diamond is one of those entertainers!

Endre - It's hard to believe it's been 40 years since you were in high school. : ) It's scary how quickly the time goes.  I'm glad Diane made sure this time you got to see Neil in person!

Neil Diamond is a pretty ageless entertainer. I've seen how loyal his fan base is. And still after 40-years he's still packing the house. That's staying power.

I like your local post about the recent Neil Diamond concert - "Hot August nights" - this year at the Greek for you on August 18, 2012.  Sounds like that was good fun.

Michael it was a fun evening,I  have seen other performers not as energetic as Neil Diamond at his age, if he did not say it we would not have known that he was 70 years old:))

Harrison, he is a great performer and knows how to keep three generations energized

Nick it is not too late he is touring the country:)
