I’m Forever in Blue Jeans with Neil Diamond at Canadian Tire Center in Ottawa

Neil Diamond’s performance at the Canadian Tire Center in Ottawa was spectacular.  He had the crowd singing and dancing  to popular hits like Cracklin’ Rosie, Sweet Caroline, Forever in Blue Jeans, Play Me, Red Red Wine and many more. The stage was brilliant with colorful lighting and a large signature diamond in the background. Pictures from his childhood in Brooklyn, New York  displayed on the large screens added a sentimental and personal touch to his music.

My personal favorite Neil Diamond song is still  “Forever in Blue Jeans.”  The words of wisdom in the chorus were powerful back when they were first written and resonate even more today in our materialistic society:

Money talks
But it don’t sing and dance
And it don’t walk
And long as I can have you
Here with me, I’d much rather be
Forever in blue jeans

What impressed me most about Neil Diamond’s performance was the fact that his very distinctive voice has not changed much over the years.  I remember listening to his music many years ago when my mother was a huge fan.  I am still humming his tunes this morning!

  1. It’s my favorite song too… I feel like a teen always when I hear it… it was “our song” while we entered the bathtub with our jeans to make them more authentic :o) It’s great that you were there!

  2. I am so glad you had the chance to see the concert, and I’m glad for the review! I have tickets to a Neil Diamond concert in May! It’s probably the same tour, and I am really excited. I’m not actually sure which song I’d say is my favorite. Maybe after the concert I’ll have a more definitive response. 🙂 How fun!
