Neil Diamond Is Coming to .... Glastonbury

It has been revealed that Neil Diamond will be playing a set on the final night of this year's Glastonbury Festival at Worthy Farms in Pilton in the UK. To be honest, I think Neil, the Jewish Elvis, would be a phenomenal act at Bonnaroo. He may not be the typical festival performer, but I imagine he would draw a large, receptive crowd in an afternoon slot and it would be a big boost to his image with a younger audience. He was out of place at the The Last Waltz, like he might seem at the 'Roo, but his singing was a highlight amongst the best of the best. Between a Rick Rubin produced album and a Glastonbury appearance, Neil's hipster stock is way up.
