What A Show, What A Night!

I wrote this poem in December of 2001 and it was about the time i saw Neil play Newcastle’s Telewest Arena in feb 2001.

WHAT A SHOW WHAT A NIGHT

It was feb ninety nine when a Legend arrived
Neil Diamond in concert, we’d been so long deprived
On stage the Star came, what a roar from the crowd
Neil couldnt hear me, tho i shouted so loud
America He sang, thats my favourite song, ten thousand people all singing along
I left on a high, what a show what a night
Neil promised to be back, another roar of delight
A special thank you to Neil by a fan from afar
You were great on the night as always you are
England loves you my friend, please hurry back soon
Dont make it too long, were “just a ride across the moon”
