■ By Susan Carrier / Contributed
The last time Dean Colley brought his Tribute to Neil Diamond to Hemet, the last few tickets sold out at the door. This time when the “Hot August Night” band arrives on Saturday, Nov. 17, there will be no tickets left to be found. With two weeks left before the event, there are fewer than 50 tickets remaining.
Dean Colley and his showcase band, Hot August Night, are known across the country as the number one tribute to the music of Neil Diamond. Dean Colley’s sound-alike and look-alike tribute performance includes everything from the classic 60s to contemporary Neil Diamond hits.
The show is a musical journey celebrating the legacy of Neil Diamond, featuring over 30 classic hits, including “Sweet Caroline,” “Song Sung Blue,” “Holly Holy,” “Forever in Blue Jeans,” “Cracklin Rosie,” “America,” “Cherry Cherry,” and many more.
Meanwhile, tickets for the rest of the Tribute Mania Concert series are going fast. Less than 50 tickets remain for the final shows of the season; Tribute to Queen featuring Queen Nation (Dec 8), and Cash, Killer and the King: a tribute to Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis (Dec 15). The concert line up for the next season of Tribute Mania will be announced to the sellout crowd at the Tribute to CCR concert this weekend. Look out for next week’s Valley Chronicle for the list.
