Way before TV On the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Vivian Girls, Grizzly Bear, DIIV, Parquet Courts, A Place to Bury Strangers and the So So Glos... before the Lordz of Brooklyn, Type O Negative, Life of Agony and Biohazard from Brooklyn, NY... before Jay-Z, B.I.G, Big Daddy Kane, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Lil Kim, GZA, RZA, and The Beastie Boys... before Pat Benatar even, there was a musician who was proud to be from Brooklyn and who made Brooklyn proud... no, not Barbara Streisand. I'm talking about NEIL DIAMOND!

Is it possible though that Neil Diamond has NEVER actually played in Brooklyn? That's what they're saying. They're also saying that's going to change after Neil announces the location of a secret show happening this Monday in Brooklyn. The location will be announced Monday (9/29) at 8am by Neil. Doors to the show open at 5pm. Neil plays at 6. Tickets will be available on a first come, first serve basis. Stay tuned.

Where do you think he's playing?

UPDATE: It's at Erasmus Hall High School.
