Neil Diamond 

When: Sun., July 1 2012
There can't be much left on Neil Diamond’s bucket list. Over the past 50 years, the 71-year-old New Yorker went from faceless songwriting machine to massively successful pop star to magnetic concert entertainer to cultural icon. He's sold more than 100 million albums, scored some No. 1 singles, been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, heard his songs interpreted by artists ranging from Elvis to the Monkees, won a Grammy, starred in a movie, set countless attendance records at his concerts, and released more than 30 albums and almost as many greatest-hits collections. Diamond’s last two Rick Rubin-produced LPs, 2008’s Home Before Dark and 2010’s Dreams, earned him some of the best reviews of his long career. And, remarkably, Home Before Dark was his first No. 1 album ever. But Diamond has always been more interested in entertaining his loyal fans than catering to critics. He comes to the Q this weekend for another one of hits-stuffed shows loaded with all sorts of glitter. 8 p.m. Tickets: $55 - $120. – Brian Baker
