50 Year Anniversary World Tour (Neil Diamond)

50 Year Anniversary World Tour is a Neil Diamond tour which marked the 50th Anniversary of his first hit single, "Solitary Man," released in 1966.[1] It began in Fresno, California on April 7, 2017, and was scheduled to conclude at The O2 Arena in London on October 19, 2017. The tour began just after the March release of a 50-song, three-disc career-spanning box set titled Neil Diamond 50 – 50th Anniversary Collection.[2][3] The Oceania tour was announced on November 10, 2017.[4][5][6][7] However, the Oceania tour was cancelled on January 22, 2018 after Diamond announced he was diagnosed with Parkinsons Disease.[8]
