Neil Diamond at The Bitter End tonight

When I think of my favorite concert film ever – – The Last Waltz, two things come to mind immediately: Robbie Robertson’s smile, and the performance of “Dry Your Eyes,” with Neil Diamond. Yes, the man who inspired me to want to wear nudie suits, Neil Diamond, takes a jet back to the past tonight with a performance at The Bitter End in NYC. Neil Diamond will perform at a special free MySpace Secret Show, tonight, correlating with yesterday’s release of Diamond’s highly anticipated new album, Home Before Dark, his second collaboration with producer Rick Rubin, released yesterday on Columbia Records. Home Before Dark is imbued with the same style of inspired melodies that has made his music so enduring. The album’s highlights include the stunning lead single “Pretty Amazing Grace” and a duet with the Dixie Chicks’ Natalie Maines entitled “Another Day (That Time Forgot).” The new collection was written by Diamond and recorded in Los Angeles with guitarist Mike Campbell, keyboardist Benmont Tench (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers), bassist/acoustic guitarist Smokey Hormel and guitarist Matt Sweeney. The album will also be available as a deluxe version that includes two bonus tracks and a DVD with rare footage of Diamond in the studio. To coincide with the release, Diamond will be launching a 37-City North American Tour starting on July 19th in St. Paul, Minnesota.
