"So Good! So Good! So Good!"

There's only one song that can get a whole room screaming those words without a care in the world, and that's the iconic "Sweet Caroline" by Neil Diamond.

While the chart-topping song became Diamond's most recognizable tune, there's so much more to the singer-songwriter's repertoire and success. Since making his debut in the 60s, Diamond has made a name for himself as one of the world's best-selling artists of all time.

The prolific entertainer has sold over 100 million albums worldwide, has had 13 hits in the Top 10, and amassed dozens of awards, including a Grammy and Golden Globes Award. In addition to "Sweet Caroline (Good Times Never Seemed So Good)," his long list of hits include "I’m a Believer," "Red Red Wine," and "Cracklin’ Rosie."

For decades, Diamond's vibrant performances and hit tunes made him one of the biggest concert draws in the country.

In 2016, Diamond announced that he was embarking on a world tour to mark the 50th anniversary of his first hit single "Solitary Man." The 50 Year Anniversary World Tour kicked off in California in April 2017, and the final show was scheduled for April 2018 in Perth, Australia.

Unfortunately, Diamond recently received a life-altering diagnosis, which prompted him to cancel the remaining concert dates, and retire from touring all together.
