For Christmas I bought my mom tickets to Neil Diamond. Seven months of waiting ending last night when we saw him perform at Rio Tinto. Neil Diamond has fans young and old, and it was fun to watch everyone dancing and having a good time. He sang the classics (which are the only ones I know), including a subdued and more Monkee-fied version of "I'm a Believer" (with the former making it quite the lovely love song). The biggest hit was "Sweet Caroline", whose chorus (which is awesome) was repeated about ten times. And each time the crowd gave it their all. My mom had a blast, even though I wasn't the best company that night.
