Neil Diamond extends UK and Ireland tour to Blackpool
01 Dec 2014
Neil Diamond has announced he will bring his world tour to Blackpool’s Bloomfield Road stadium during summer 2015.
The Sweet Caroline singer will perform at the Blackpool stadium on 23 July 2015. It will be Diamond’s only outdoor concert on his tour of the UK and Ireland. Tickets for the show go on general sale on Thursday 4 December.
Blackpool’s Bloomfield Road stadium is home to Blackpool FC and, earlier this year, Rod Stewart performed at the 20,000 capacity venue.
Along with his Blackpool concert, Diamond is set to play dates in Dublin, Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham and Leeds during his tour of the UK and Ireland.
Diamond recently released Melody Road - his first album with Capitol Records – and will perform tracks from the album and those fan favourites from his extensive career. Sweet Caroline, Song Sung Blue and Blue Jeans can all be counted amongst Diamond’s biggest hits.
The tour of the UK is Diamond’s first full tour since 2011 having only played a selection of special shows in the intervening years.
