A RECREATION OF ONE OF THE GREATEST LIVE ALBUMS OF ALL TIME…
Celebrating the legendary recording “Hot August Night”, PETER BYRNE brings Neil Diamond to you together with a 30 – piece symphony Orchestra. It is over 45 years since Neil Diamond stepped on st age 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 hearing Peter’s tribute. Neil Diamond recently announced retirement from live performing due to illness and many of his fans both in Australia and worldwide were devastated and saddened at the news, so Peter decided he will salute 50 years of his music with some special moments in the show. This is as real as Neil could be…With a 30-piece Symphony Orchestra Peter reenacts every song from the albums as Diamond recordedit.
After a sell out shows in 2017 Hot August Night returns again through NSW and ACT
“….the day I see a better Diamond, will be the day the man himself appears on stage”…Adrian Revere…The Mercury

When Peter first performed his production of the tribute show, ‘Hot August Night’, as a 25th anniversary tribute to one of the greatest live albums of all time, with a 40-piece orchestra backing him, he received a standing ovation from the 4,000 plus audience at the Sydney Convention Centre.
The ‘Hot August Night’ tribute show has been performed every August since that first night, in South Africa, the UK, on cruise ships all over the world, and Australian venues such as State Theatre, Sydney, Burswood Casino, Perth, Adelaide Festival and Taronga Zoo Twilight venue.
His orchestra show has also performed for many large corporate clients as Retrovision, CBA Awards and Victor Cheng.
Peter has received seven ACE Awards and after receiving another of his many ‘MO’ Awards for best Production Show’, Peter’s ta lent was acknowledged by the great man himself as follows:
“Thanks for the great tribute.” Neil Diamond
One thing’s for sure Peter Byrne is no rough Diamond
