Neil Diamond fans, don’t miss out on this evening! For one night only the Crystal Ballroom will be transformed into the Greek Theater — complete with trees and Greek columns — where Neil Diamond performed the legendary Hot August Night show 40 years ago. Helping to complete the rememberance will be one of the finest Neil Diamond tribute bands ever, as Super Diamond performs pieces of the original show from 40 years ago (complete with the original banter from Neil Diamond), and newer classics from the Hot August Night 2 show held in 1986.

This historic event is too big for any single night to contain, however. All month long, in true McMenamins fashion, Ringlers Pub will honor the occasion with a couple Neil-themed drink specials! Every three days during this “Red, Red Wine month,” a different red wine from Edgefield winery will be featured for only $5.50 a glass. Other Diamond-esque drinks will include: Cracklin’ Rose Sangria, Song Sung Blue, Love on the Rocks, Cherry, Cherry, Kentucky Woman and Diamond Girls.

And to top off the fun with just a little more fun, we invite everyone to join us for an after-party in Al’s Den, for a meet-and-greet with the Super Diamond guys while DJ AM Gold lays down all the right tunes to fit the era.

There will not be another Neil Diamond bash like this again (unless you want to wait and see what we do for the 50th!) … so don’t miss the fun!

    I would like to see this show for two simple reasons: (1) I love Neil Diamond; (2) I have a Classics degree and love all things Greek and Roman!

    This show will be awesome! Neil Diamond reminds me of my dad. The Tribute band sounds great, and Hot August Night was a great tour and double live album.

    We ALMOST named our first child Cracklin’ Rosie. Then we ALMOST chose Sweet Caroline. We wound up going with Noah, but that should tell you something!

    Ooooh the memories of many SuperDiamond Shows….I need a reason to wear shiny clothes and rhinestones—

    It’s 1977 and I’m 16 years old. My parents are out running errands so I’ve got the house to myself. It’s an absolutely glorious day. And I’m blasting crunchy granola suite and dancing all by myself on the patio and I know that life is so damn good. And now it’s 2012 and I’m freaking 51 years old and that album still makes me feel like that teenage girl with all the possibilities ahead of her. Life is damn good. Thank you so much Mr. Diamond.
