Neil Diamond, for a second time

neil_diamond.gifAlmost 3 years ago to the day, Julie made me a very happy boy by supplying me with both Neil Diamonds tickets (which were free) and a willing concert buddy (Becky and Eric went with us too but this was way back when Becky was blogging). Ah, Neil truly did rock my socks off.

Neil is making his way to Philly once more, but I forgot to buy tickets when I had the chance. I figured I would just forgo the Neil this time around, and just listen to his new album while other people were enjoying him live and in concert.

I was sitting at my desk at work today, trying to forget that I wouldn’t be seeing Neil Diamond’s concert this week when Barry asked me if I was going to the Neil Diamond concert. Sadly, I said, I would be Diamond-less this year. I was crestfallen, but determined to live my life to the fullest. Not an hour later I got an IM from a lovely young lady (with whom I happen to live). Marisa had some news to share: she managed to get two free tickets to the Neil Diamond concert this Sunday.

Clearly, the universe loves me.

Below you can see where we will be seated:


Sure, we’ll be a little far from the stage, but these tickets are free and hearing the music is the important thing. I can hardly wait!

  1. Don’t worry about the seats. You’ll love it. I saw him last week in Indianapolis and wouldn’t have missed it for anything. (Of course, I had good seats…)

  2. That was fun, and I had totally forgotten that we did that. Weird! Anyway, what is going on here? Actual posts? Who replaced you with someone who updates their blog?

  3. snap indeed. the testament to scottycakes here is that we all kept (or at least me and Glenn) checking back to see if he had posted anything even though there’s been so little activity for so long. It’s sort of sad, really.
