An Early Christmas Present OR I am a nerd

Last night I got an early Christmas present from my parents. We all went and saw Neil Diamond in concert. It was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know what most of you are thinking, what a nerd! And you're right. The music was great, the band was great and Mr. Diamond himself was GREAT with a capital G!!!! He sounded just like he does on CD so I wasn't disappointed and he put on a great show. We were on the right side of the stage in row S but we had great seats.

We even got two shows for the price of one thanks to the family of three sitting in front of us. I would guess that the parents were in their late 30's and their son was around 11 or 12. That kid knew every. single. word. to every. single. song. Then he and his mom would sing them to each other. It was so much fun just to watch him.

So thanks mom and dad for the tickets. You guys are wonderful! LOVE YOU!!!

That sounds like an awesome night! My mom went to one of his concerts-she won tickets. She was so close she said you could see the hair on his chest. LOL!

Guess what we got her for Christmas? Tickets to Niel Diamond!

Awesome! :0 That reminds me of you making me listen to that Heart Light song in HS.

Did he sing Comin' To America? Because that song is sweet. :) Cracklin' Rosie, not so much.

haha! THIS POST made me chuckle! I can't imagine most 11 or 12 year olds even KNOW who Neil Diamond is..let alone go to the concert and belt it out with their parents! That would have been a sight! :)

Kainty,

You're not a nerd, but the kid in front of you is.

Yes, he sang Comin to America but not before he left the stage first. I was all, WHAT? Then he came back out and sang Cracklin Rosie, America, something I can't remember and Brother Loves Travelin' Salvation show. And he sang Sweet Caroline in the middle of the show and it was so rockin!
