Nearly Neil Diamond visits Mary Winspear Dec. 16 for pre Christmas show

Arriving in Sidney just in time for Christmas, Nearly Neil Diamond, featuring Bobby Bruce and the Solitary Band will play the Mary Winspear Centre on Dec. 16 at 7:30 p.m.

For over twenty years Bruce has been entertaining audiences around the world with his dynamic and passionate musical tribute to Neil Diamond.

Bruce’s tribute to Neil Diamond was born of a chance discovery by an “Elvis” impersonator at a karaoke contest in Toronto, Ontario in 1994, and within a year, news had travelled to Las Vegas about Bruce and was picked up by Legends in Concert and began a ten-month tour of the US.

Using his international touring as a launch pad, Bruce broke away from the “Legends” type shows and formed Nearly Neil and the Solitary Band in Vancouver in 1997 which quickly became a staple in the Canadian market.

Nearly Neil and the Solitary Band took up what would become a decade-long residence at the brand-new River Rock Casino in Vancouver in 2004.

Classically Diamond; Bruce’s retelling of Diamond’s classics this holiday season at the Mary Winspear is sure to be a magical evening of song and music that will move you to sing and clap along to all of his greatest hits.
