HIT STAGE show ‘A Beautiful Noise’ – a celebration of the music and a tribute to Neil Diamond has announced it will visit Southampton.

Daily Echo: Neil Diamond Tribute 'A Beautiful Noise'

Having starred at the Lyric Theatre in London’s West End in 2019, the production has embarked on a nationwide tour in 2020.

Promoters Flying Music describe the performance of award-winning Fisher Stevens – the star of the critically-acclaimed production – as encompassing “the assured virtuosity that the standard and scale of the timeless songs featured deserve”.

Fisher Stevens himself says that he takes great pride in recreating the songs of an artist who has sold more than 100 million albums since his first hit single recorded over half a century ago.

“Though he has declared his touring days over,” says Fisher, “Neil Diamond’s star will burn forever.”

With a fully live band, backing singers and dancers, the production will walk audiences though Diamond’s classics, including; “Sweet Caroline, Song Sung Blue, Cracklin’ Rosie, Forever in Blue Jeans.”

Fisher said: “These are the songs that sound-tracked our lives – the teenage dream – and remain fixtures of personal and radio playlists everywhere.”

Fisher promises theatregoers heartfelt renditions of all the biggest hits, including those featuring appearances from Lula and Barbra Streisand.

“A Beautiful Noise has been awesome, the reviews have been fantastic,” he says, “and performing the show in London’s West End, was a dream come true.”

He continued: “It is my privilege to celebrate Neil Diamond’s talent and take the audience on a musical journey.”

The show will come to The Mayflower Theatre on July 1 2021. Tickets available from the box office on 02380 711811.
