Neil Diamond Concert Setlist
Neil Diamond has many beloved hits, and he packs as many songs as he can into his shows, including songs that have yet to be released. Fans can expect a few favorites at his shows, including the always popular, “Sweet Caroline”. This is a song that fans always sing along with, and Neil Diamond seems to delight in this shared time with his concertgoers. “Cracklin’ Rosie” is another song that Neil spends just as much time listening to the crowd sing as he does singing it. The fun, iconic song is one of his most popular songs, and with good reason. “America” is a rousing song that never fails to have the crowd on its feet. And no setlist would be complete without three of Neil Diamond’s hits, “I Am…I Said”, “Song Sung Blue”, and “Heartlight”.
