There is a weekly shopping newspaper called South Bay's that comes in the mail along the south shore of Long Island in six editions from Seaford to Babylon. I received the Massapequa edition today and while I don't give it more than a glance since it is only advertisements and pictures of local politicians I was surprised to find an ad for Neil's concert in the Nassau Coliseum on September 17th. It's disturbing that it appears that seats are still available so many weeks after the initial offering. I do believe it's more a statement on the state of the economy on Long Island (one of the highest taxed areas in the nation) then a reflection on the Long Island Neil Diamond fans. (It does seem that everyone on this board is going to New Hampshire and flying over Long Island).

are either behind the stage or obstructed view. I dont see how you can base the availability of concert tickets on the economic state of Long Island- thats such a broad based statement that it almost doesnt warrant debate- there were tickets available to many other cities until recently...and there's NOTHING like a NY audience!

I mentioned on the McCartney board that I was going to three Neil concerts and received one response. Rick is a 100% McCartney fan like there are 100% Diamond fans here. He told me that Neil will be playing in Long Island (he lives there) in September but wouldn't be going. He said Neil isn't his cup of tea and he doesn't "get it"! BUT, he also said he saw the VH1 "thingy" and had to admit that he never realized how talented Neil is! There may be hope for him yet! (I posted this here instead of starting a new thread.)
