After five previous SOLD OUT shows at the Mary Winspear Centre (Charlie White Theatre) the Victoria based show- DOUBLE DIAMOND returns for another TWO back to back shows Feb. 12 & Feb.13 in 2010 is what many British Columbians consider to be “outstanding” to the “real” Neil Diamond touring shows that they have experienced throughout Canada and the U.S. Many patrons have commented that this show is far more energetic and entertaining than the real thing. Tickets are already selling quickly for the upcoming “double” sizzling performance.

The show has been performing for 8 years around the Province and has pleased well over 200,000 British Columbians to date. Victoria, B.C. tribute artist and show presenter - Bill Zaalberg has successfully re-created the Neil Diamond world tour concert to a "T". The 3 hr. glitzy "double" feature opens the evening with "TUSK" - The Fleetwood Mac tribute as performed by several members of the fully - orchestrated show. Audiences have commented repeatedly as to the remarkable resemblance in looks and sound to the real Stevie Nicks as performed by Bill’s talented daughter-in law, Kathleen Zaalberg.

Immediately following TUSK is part one of DOUBLE DIAMOND complete with a full brass section, female backup vocalists and a tight rhythm section. One may well expect to hear "Coming to America", "I'm A Believer, Desiree, Kentucky Woman, Love on the Rocks, September Morn, Crackling Rosie, Sweet Caroline” and selections from his latest albums “Pretty Amazing Grace” and “Delirious Love” just to mention a few, like you've never heard it before. Audiences have been rubbing their eyes and checking their ears in total disbelief as to the closeness and sizzle that this group puts into each and every performance. After a 20 minute intermission the DOUBLE DIAMOND group picks up the pace with some of the best, hit songs Neil Diamond has ever written and recorded but with a unique style of their own. Upon completion, several standing ovations and encores are not uncommon.
