"'The Neil Diamond 'Experience' is what sets Solitary Band apart. Neil Diamond 'blipped' to Boise from 1976 and has been playing this Christmas show for […] 5 years," it was written in a press release. "Our Neil has a very unique perspective on Boise, his music, our pop culture and the very impact his music has made around the world in the past 40 years. There are big laughs and fun times with this inventive reimagining of Neil Diamond's catalog. 21 songs across all his albums and something that will make Grandma swoon."
