With a career spanning more than 40 years, NEIL DIAMOND is a living legend in the music industry. Given his amazing collection of Billboard toppers, it takes a truly special talent to deliver a true-to-life tribute experience. NEARLY NEIL will make a believer out of you.

Bobby Bruce has spent his life onstage from film and television to musical theatre and rock revues. In 1994, Bobby’s incomparable talent for impersonating NEIL DIAMOND came to life. In 1998 he made the switch from impersonation to tribute and NEARLY NEIL and THE SOLITARY BAND was born. For more than fifteen years, Bobby’s genuine, heartfelt connection to both the music and the audience has created a phenomenon able to recreate the excitement of a living legend at his very best. Possessing captivating stage presence paired with stunning vocal delivery NEARLY NEIL and THE SOLITARY BAND is a memorable tribute in a league of its own.

Regarding NEARLY NEIL and THE SOLITARY BAND, Danny Gaisin of the Halton Arts Review stated, “He uncannily duplicates the voice. He captures the very essence of his subject, and most of all, he replicates the contagious and infectious charisma that occurred between Diamond and his audiences”. Hellen Barry of Australian Stage Online continues, “Of course, there’s that voice. That throaty, husky, whispering purr; it’s uncanny. He has the swagger, the laidback charisma, the sheer essence of Diamond”. You must see this incredible show others have called a “dynamic and passionate tribute” with “depth, style and sophistication” that is “maybe even better than the real” thing!
