VETERAN US singer Neil Diamond will play the Aviva Stadium in Dublin this summer.
Last night it was announced that Diamond who turns 70 this year, will perform in the massive arena to 40,000 fans on Saturday June 25.
Although his musical career stretches nearly 50 years and includes 'Sweet Caroline' and 'Song Sung Blue', in recent times the singing star has undergone a commercial and critical renaissance.
His last album 'Home Before Dark', debuted at No 1 in the US charts, while 'Dreams', a collection of his favourite songs by other artists, was also well received.
Tickets for the show go on sale on Monday at 8am from 100 Ticketmaster outlets nationwide.
