Hello Again

T0757390775
For the past 20 years, the unique voice and music of Neil Diamond has been portrayed by JJ Jones all over the world, including many years touring Australia and Europe. Hello Again is his new UK Theatre show for 2014, consisting of 2 hours of unforgettable music celebrating the songwriting genius who has written such enormous hits as Love on the Rocks, Sweet Caroline and Cracklin' Rosie. In the first part of the show JJ takes you back to the early days of Neil's successes with songs such as Solitary Man, Shilo, Song Sung Blue and Forever in Blue Jeans. The latter half is a more lively adaptation of his Hot August Night album and songs from the film The Jazz Singer, and features hits including America, Hello Again and Brother Loves Travelling Salvation Show. JJ particularly likes to emulate Neil's live vocal style rather than his recorded voice, and combined with the power of his superb 7-piece band, the evening is a spellbinding recreation of Neil Diamond - live in concert.

A Tribute to Neil Diamond

User Reviews

Hello Again Neil Diamond (22Dec16): Tribute shows, Homages, Celebrations ? There are just so many. Some good, some bad, they come and go in and out of vogue, much like the artist(s) that they are emulating. A very select few however, are just so good, that they become a sensation in their own right, thus becoming a must see, the only show for fans of the original artist. Hello Again Neil Diamond most certainly falls into this category, with a cast that can proudly boast past credits to include Michael Jackson, Kylie Minogue, Take That, Spice Girls, Bay City Rollers, Freddie Starr, Culture Club and many more, its no surprise that this show has accelerated itself to becoming the talk of theatre land. It's also no surprise, when you consider the subject matter...One Neil Leslie Diamond, born a star on 24th January 1941, in his early years an in-house songwriter at the now legendary Brill Building, scoring his first solo hit in 1966. 50 years and over 125 Million records sold, his ongoing story carved deep in the annals of music history is one that must be told. Enter Brooklyn Creed & The Salvation Band, dubbed The Voice of Diamond, Brooklyn carries huge expectation on his shoulders. Born with an uncannily similar timbre to his idol and an exceptional guitar player, Brooklyn soon sends any competition running home to their mothers.í The Salvation Band, great friends and one of the hottest live bands in the UK, coupled with Brooklyn Horns* and Ascending Strings* hand pick specific live and studio versions of Diamondís performances under the critical gaze of MD/ Keyboard player Scott Newstead to ensure absolute authenticity. Show creators/ producers, Darren Bazzoni and Juanita Diaz were absolutely insistent in keeping quality and consistency paramount throughout, employing one of the best Production teams in the business. Sound, lights & video are in safe hands with the crew responsible for such theatre smashes such as The Carpenters Story, Letís Hang On and The Illegal Eagles. Evocative imagery, video and narration enhance the magic, as the show tells the spellbinding story of how a poor boy from Brooklyn NYC rose and rose to become one of the biggest stars on the planet. From The Bang Years to the present day youíll soon find yourself singing along to all the hits including Sweet Caroline, Crackliní Rosie, Forever in Blue Jeans, Song Sung Blue, Hello Again, Love on the Rocks, America and many more. * Brooklyn Horns and Ascending Strings, on selected shows only.
