A few weeks ago, O and I had the opportunity to go see Neil Diamond LIVE. Some close friends invited us to ride in a Limo to dinner and then on to the show.
First, although I've never gone out of my way to listen to any Neil Diamond music, I am VERY familiar with it. My mom bout wore out that "Hot August Night" 8-Track tape! And I am a child of the 70's and 80's...And sure, whenever I do hear a familiar song, it's fun. I would have never admitted that though LOL!
So we were just kinda "eh, whatever" about going. We were mostly looking forward to partying in the Limo. Which turned out to be a Challenger Limo/Disco Bar on Wheels! LOL!
The really neat thing about the concert was that there were people from all generations there. Parents and their grown children attending together, some for the umpteenth time. And when he walked out on the stage, all the women of all ages were screaming as if Elvis, or The Beatles had come out. [Overheard in the crowd: "Ain't no amount of Viagra in this world gonna fix that shit!" gesturing to his screaming & swooning female companion...LOL!]
I dunno how, at 74 years old, this guy does what he does. His voice is ageless. What an awesome concert... Probably one of the very best shows I've ever been to. So Good! So Good! So Good! *ahem...sorry* LOL!!!
Anyway, it took two whole weeks to get the Neil Diamond tunes out of my head...
We really had a great time...we ALL had a really great time! From the Limo ride, dinner, show, after show Limo
