Neil Diamond at The Bitter End (05/07/08)
Neil Diamond greeted the long line of fans stationed outside The Bitter End on Bleeker Street, saying hello and posing for pictures. Once inside the club, Diamond, backed by a small band consisting of members from both his studio and touring musicians, gave an energized acoustic performance of “Solitary Man”, “Don’t Go There”, “Home Before Dark”, “Pretty Amazing Grace”, “Kentucky Woman”, “Cherry, Cherry” and “Sweet Caroline”. The club placed speakers in the windows during the performance allowing the hundreds of fans who couldn’t get into the club to sing-along on the street and sidewalk and participate in this once in a lifetime event.
