Neil Diamond

A few nights ago my friend Diane and I saw Neil Diamond in concert at Madison Square Garden. Most every seat was filled and he was to be there 3 nights in a row. I was expecting a great concert. I have to say the first four songs we didn't recognize and judging from the reaction of the audience, we weren't the only ones. He didn't make any announcement that they were from a new release. So that wasn't it. It wasn't until the 5th number that everyone heard a song they knew. Of course he did do his big hits, including America, with several standing ovations. He did other songs I didn't know and I lost interest. I've been to many concerts over the years with songs done that I didn't know, but still enjoyed them. This is the first time something like that ever happened where I found myself drifting off. From comments we heard from others they said he was better the last time they had seen him.
Go figure....

Have you ever been to a concert that didn't live up to your expectations?
Leave a comment and tell us about it.
