Bob Drury’s ‘VIVA NEIL DIAMOND 

Whilst performing in Las Vegas some years ago Bob Drury was described as ”one of the world’s finest vocal tributes to Neil Diamond” and he’s now back touring the UK with his new acoustic based show for 2021 celebrating the legendary Neil Diamond and his incredible back catalogue of songs.  Bob Drury’s award-winning one-man show is an absolute ‘must-see’ for any Diamond fans.  Prepare to be blown away by his vocal likeness which has been delighting audiences around the world combined with his stunning prowess on the guitar.   

By taking some of the songs back to how they were originally written, with just voice and guitar, Bob brings a whole new dimension to the songs, particularly the beautiful guitar ballads that have a genuine depth of emotion when stripped right back. The show still includes loads of Neil Diamond’s blockbuster hits such as ‘Sweet Caroline’, ‘Cracklin’ Rosie’, ‘Play Me’, ‘Hello Again’,  ‘Song Sung Blue’, ‘Beautiful Noise’, ‘Red Red Wine’ and ‘Forever in Blue Jeans’ so get those voices ready to sing along! There are also a few lesser known songs that are sure to become your favourites by the end of the show.  A fantastic evening guaranteed!
