The 70-something Neil Diamond is a true treasure of American music. Born in the early 40s in Brooklyn, young Neil was no stranger to adversity and hard work. Long before he would sell millions of Neil Diamond tickets and pack concert venues around the globe, he was raised in a strict household by Russian and Polish parents.
Here’s a great factoid: Neil Diamond attended New York University on a fencing scholarship. In an interview with the legendary Larry King, Diamond admitted that his initial goal in life was to become a biologist and find cures for the world's most prevalent diseases. Lucky for his countless fans who have bought Neil Diamond concert tickets and attended live events in the past and plan on doing so in the future, he ended up being permanently lured into the music business after a publishing company offered him $50 a week to write songs during his senior year at NYU.
The rest is history, but it is a colorful, illustrious and highly entertaining history. He first began recording in studio in the 1960s, and Diamond spent several years as a songwriter before he became confident and talented enough to release his own single in the latter half of the decade. A huge break came in 1968 when he signed a deal with an established record company. Less than two years later, tickets to Neil Diamond concerts were the hottest thing in Los Angeles. He began his foray into concert performances with 10 consecutive sold-out dates at the Greek Theater – one of which became a very popular live double album. This spawned a number of Neil Diamond tours throughout the 70s and 1980s, although it can be argued he did not actually hit his peak until the 1990s.
