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.
