ONE of Europe's biggest Neil Diamond tribute acts will take to the stage in Redditch next month.

Neil Diamond, The Experience will perform at the Palace Theatre on September 11.

The 11-piece band, made up of 3 brass, two keys, drums, lead guitar, bass guitar and two female backing vocals are headed by vocalist Dominic Kaye as Neil Diamond.

In a touching move, the band are dedicating their performance to the victims of the 9/11 terror attacks, as the 20th anniversary coincides with their performance.

A spokesperson for the group said: "We want to honour the memory of those who lost their lives on that tragic day as well as the thousands of loved ones who were left to grieve their loss from that day to this.

"The show opens with the song America from the Neil Diamond movie The Jazz Singer. We feel that this is the best hit to start with to commemorate the lives of the victims."

Tickets are on sale now.
