There will be no better preseason rally cry for Red Sox fans than hearing Neil Diamond sing Sweet Caroline live at TD Garden this March. The singing and songwriting legend penned the song that has famously played at Boston Red Sox games for decades, making it one of Boston’s most recognizable anthems. In addition to Sweet Caroline, Diamond’s show promises to be a great evening of classic tracks and energetic fans at one of Boston’s favorite live performance venues.
The TD Banknorth Garden is located in Boston’s historic North End neighborhood, a short walk away from the Boxer Boston. The relatively new arena plays host to the beloved Boston Celtics and Bruins home games. From the last row of the upper deck to the various suites and box seats throughout the Garden, there truly isn’t a bad seat in the house. The neighborhood is pretty great too. The North End holds a reputation for having the best tasting Italian food in New England. In addition to being a great spot for dinner and a show, the performer — Diamond— is a one of a kind act.
Going on 50-plus years of recording and performing music, Diamond’s accolades speak for themselves. He continues to tour and produce despite having already been inducted into both the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the prestigious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In addition to Sweet Caroline, Diamond has written a slew of timeless classic, some of which include: “America,” “I’m a Believer,” and “Longfellow Serenade.” With so many impressive accomplishments under his belt, Diamond hasn’t stopped yet.
This ongoing world tour will feature music from Diamond’s latest studio album Melody Road. While the new music is an exciting draw for the TD Garden show, fans of the classic hits have no need to worry, he won’t pull a Dylan. Diamond is known for giving the fans what they want by playing popular songs. The show is coming up and with Diamond’s popularity in Boston, it’s sure to sell out quickly. Prospective guests at our hotel near TD Garden should definitely check out this and other events at the arena during their stay.
