Singer retells Diamond tale
Published 07/04/14



MUSICIAN Bob Drury is stopping off at the Kenton Theatre in April with his one-man show about legendary singer Neil Diamond.

In what has been described as “more than just a tribute show” Bob will trace the astonishing career of Neil Diamond, from his early days as a struggling songwriter in New York’s Tin Pan Alley through various career highlights in the Seventies, Eighties and Nineties before bringing the story up to date with material from Diamond’s recent albums.

As well as featuring many blockbuster hits such as America, Love On The Rocks, and Sweet Caroline the show will include “unplugged” elements reflecting Diamond’s acoustic roots and recent acoustic projects.

The show comes to Henley as part of a nationwide tour of 45 theatres, and brings “multi-media” features to the stage with voice-overs and video sequences to augment the stage action and help tell the story.

Bob says: “I’ve been working with Neil Diamond’s songs for about eight years now and have had a great time presenting his amazing music to audiences all over the UK and overseas.


“This show is my chance to dig a little deeper into the Neil Diamond song catalogue and include some of the fans’ favourites that wouldn’t find a place in a regular tribute night.” One such song is I’ve Been This Way Before, which was written as part of Diamond’s soundtrack for the film Jonathan Livingston Seagull but didn’t make the final cut.

• The Neil Diamond Story is at the Kenton Theatre on Wednesday, April 16. Box office (01491) 575698 or visit www.kentontheatre.co.uk
