Starring Peter Byrne with 30 Piece Orchestra
Celebrating the anniversary of the legendary recording ‘Hot August Night’, Peter Byrne brings the legend of Neil Diamond to you together with a world-class 30-piece symphony orchestra.
It is over 40 years since Neil Diamond stepped on stage at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles with a symphony orchestra and recorded what is still known today as one of the greatest epic live albums of all time. Now that album will be re-created in its original format in a national tour by Peter Byrne and the Sydney International Orchestra.
Featuring classic songs ‘Crunchy Granola Suite’, ‘Cherry Cherry’, ‘Sweet Caroline’ and ‘I Am I Said’, see the same spontaneous display of energy and sensuality of Neil Diamond with the superb talents of Peter Byrne. Peter’s capacity to recreate Neil Diamond to a standard that Neil himself has endorsed on many occasions.
Each year Peter has thrilled audiences around Australia playing tributes to Hot August Night at Sydney’s State Theatre, Darling Harbour Convention Centre, Burswood Casino, Adelaide Festival Theatre and in 2013 to 4500 people at the Twilight at Taronga series with electrifying performances. With a 30 piece Symphony Orchestra Peter re-enacts every song from the albums as Diamond recorded it.
