Review: Neil Diamond keeps Tampa fans believing at the Tampa Bay Times Forum


At age 71, Neil Diamond can still work a room like nobody's business. He proved that Sunday at the Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa, performing hit after hit after hit for a crowd of 12,382, and making them all feel like the most important fan in the room.

Sean Daly was there, and he writes: 

Rubbing our delighted faces in the depth of his songbook, Diamond kept 'em coming: the life-affirming Cherry, Cherry (which might be the perfect song), Holly Holy (pretty darn good, too) and, of course, Sweet Caroline. Sure, you think you're sick of that one — especially since the Fenway Faithful have claimed it as their own — until you hear Diamond unload that beauty in concert, reviving that chorus over and over again. "So good! So good! So good!"
