Song Sung Blue

I'm super excited to announce that ROOFTOP FILM's Summer Series will screen SONG SUNG BLUE on the lawn at South Point Park on Roosevelt Island SATURDAY, AUGUST 16th @ 9PM. THUNDER and her children, Rachel and Dana are all scheduled to be in attendance. The screening will be FREE and details can be found [here]...

...SONG SUNG BLUE has screened only once in NYC back in February to a packed house at IFC Center. This NYC screening comes at a wonderful time given the many emails of inquiry I continue to get from New Yorkers that could not make the previous screening or have since learned of the film.

As an extra bonus ROOFTOP FILM's will have a NEIL DIAMOND karaoke hour before the film that should be "off the hook". All are encouraged to [sign up] for an opportunity to belt out their favorite ND tune and make a beautiful noise as the sun sets over the big apple. [filmmaker Greg Kohs]

August 16th is also the last of four shows that the real Neil Diamond is playing at MSG in NYC this week. The first is tonight (Aug 12). Check Ticketmaster for tickets to those.

Lots and lots of below-face tix for Neil on craigslist. Should be easy to snag one for $20 or so out front of MSG.

""off the hook""

Sounded a bit weird to me too.

Got a sweet deal on ebay for Saturdays show!

Anon 2:20, you mean that I paid 110 bucks for two crappy tickets at the box office, but I could get front seats for $20 at graiglist?

It is interesting how so many scalpers bought up so many nd tickets thinking they would make a profit,but ended up screwing themselves.Same thing happened in 2005.

I got in for $20 in 2005. The seats weren't great, but I got into Neil Diamond at MSG for only $20. Pretty sweet.

I'm going to MSG this Sat night. the last time I seen Neil was Oct 2001 at MSG right after 9/11. He was great and even though the security was tough no one complained. Can't wait for sat night!

Went to last night's show. He played Sweet Caroline three times in a row. Was kinda bizarre.

From last night's show,a song about nyc and its many sounds that Neil thinks is "Beautiful Noise"

If they put more interesting information like this, I guess that’s going to improve the website. And get more comments in their blog...

Neil Diamond!! Awesome..

Good music, talent, a great time!
My favorite is "I'm A Believer"

I thought love was more or less a giving thing
Seems the more I gave, the less I got
What's the use in trying, all you get is pain
When I needed sunshine, I got rain
Then I saw her face, now I'm a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind
I'm in love and I'm a believer
I couldn't leave her if I tried

Love was out to get me, that's the way it seemed
Disappointment haunted all my dreams
