    He is back just in Time for Football Season - Sweet caroline

    http://www.nytimes.com/2008/08/12/ar...html?th&emc=th

    Always a strong concert draw, he has been making more money on the road than ever before, grossing $168 million over his last three tours, according to Billboard. And in May his 46th album on the Billboard charts, “Home Before Dark” (Columbia) — a set of stripped-down and reflective songs produced by Rick Rubin, who recorded Johnny Cash’s last releases — became his first to reach No. 1. On Tuesday, Mr. Diamond, 67, begins a four-night engagement at Madison Square Garden, part of a mostly sold-out world tour that will take him well into 2009.
    “I never expected that I would be doing this for as long as I’ve been doing it,” he said after his sold-out show at the XL Center here on Thursday, having changed out of his black silk stage costume and into jeans and a loose-fitting cotton shirt, his eyes hidden behind small round glasses.

    The guy is a freakin national treasure, no question about it. That being said I don't need to hear his songs at a football game.

    If he is really that popular, it could be the sign that this is the beginning of the end.

    That would be unbelievable. The Jack would go NUTS!

    He could do a 3-4 song set during halftime and then come back for his "Grand Finale" between the 3rd and 4th quarters.

    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.
