Bobby Bruce as Nearly Neil
Bobby Bruce's tribute celebrates the vibrant and exciting times of Neil Diamond’s early days. Focusing on Diamond's rise to fame from the mid sixties to his historic 1980 Jazz Singer album; Bobby evokes the excitement of a living legend in his heyday. For two decades, Bobby’s genuine respect for the music and heartfelt connection with the audience; coupled with his engaging stage presence and stunning vocal delivery have kept him in a league of his own.
"Neil Diamond in his best years. Maybe even better."
Tubantia, the Netherlands
"Bobby Bruce not only mimics the great Neil Diamond to a tee but also implants some of his own pizzazz and style, a combination so clever and disarming that it brought the house down."

"Once in a lifetime there is one act that stands out from the rest."
Auckland Weekend Sun, New Zealand
" Bobby Bruce stands out as one of the best choices we ever made. To date, he has our award for most repeat visits for major concerts, as we were simply responding to the demand from the public for his return.
It isn't just the professionalism and energy that Bobby Bruce and his band bring to every performance - it's their organisation that makes booking them an absolute pleasure"
