Famed singer/songwriter Neil Diamond, known most famously for the 1969 hit "Sweet Caroline", will be taking his act to Wantagh's for the fist time in 2012.
Diamond, who has sold more than 125 million albums in his five-decade music career, will be making a Wantagh stop during his North American tour on June 8, the rock/pop icon announced in a press release this week. It will mark the first time the 2011 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee has performed at the Jones Beach venue.
Diamond's Wantagh stop will come one week after he kicks off his 2012 tour in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. on June 1. Tickets for Diamond's June 8 Jones Beach show go on sale Dec. 5 at Ticketmaster.com, LiveNation.com and NeilDiamond.com.
