Neil Diamond: Hot August Night III Live At The Greek Theatre 2012 Deluxe Edition (2CD/Blu-ray) 2018 Release Date 8/17/18
Two CD + Blu-ray edition. Hot August Night Ill chronicles Neil Diamond's triumphant return to the legendary Greek Theatre in Los Angeles in August 2012.
The magical evening was Diamond's 40th anniversary celebration of the original multi-platinum-selling Hot August Night collection that was recorded at the very same venue in 1972. Diamond's noted concert performance and onstage musical prowess is in full evidence on Hot August Night Ill, which features 33 songs including 31 greatest hits. Clocking in at over 2 hours and 20 minutes in length, Hot August Night Ill is a grand time for all. Following the 2012 shows at The Greek, Billboard Magazine said of Diamond's performance, "His voice remains powerful and accurate; he reaches towards the baritone register for emphasis, just as he did in the 70's.... he never falters in delivering every line with conviction."
