July 17th (7pm) Eric Diamond & The Ultimate Legends (Neil Diamond Tribute)
Eric “Diamond” has been performing as Neil Diamond for the last 17 years and has been Wisconsin’s Favorite Neil Diamond Tribute Artist since 2009. He has been told on countless occasions that he “sounds more like Neil than Neil Diamond does”. Although primarily focusing his solo shows around southeastern Wisconsin, for the last nine years Eric has toured the casinos, theaters and festivals of the Midwest as a headliner with the Ultimate Legends Show.
In the beginning, Eric worked with several other entertainers and Tribute Artists as part of a duo to provide an energetic evening filled with variety, good music and great times. Eventually going solo and taking his one-man “Neil & Nostalgia” show on the road, Eric has been wowing crowds not only with his spot-on vocal performance of Neil Diamond’s biggest hits, but also with his tributes to artists like Johnny Cash, John Cougar Mellencamp and the nostalgic “one-hit wonders” of the 60s and 70s. He has performed at the Wisconsin State Fair and Summerfest more times than he can remember.
Over the last several years, Eric has been showcased on WITI Fox 6’s Wake Up and Real Milwaukee shows, as well as CBS 58 Sunday Morning’s “Diamond in the Rough” feature story. Last year, he was fortunate enough to do a small tour of the American Legion Posts of Central Kentucky, and has performed for sold-out crowds at historic Wisconsin Theaters such as Manitowoc’s Civic Center, Racine’s Memorial Hall and Sentry Theater in Stevens Point.
