Neil Diamond - Diamond's New Zealand Show Axed
NEIL DIAMOND's planned performance in Wellington, New Zealand has been axed - because promoters failed to find a suitable venue in the city.
The Sweet Caroline hitmaker was due to play a show in the country's capital on 4 March (11) but only outdoor arenas were available to host the concert.
Organisers insist Diamond's show can only be staged under cover because of "logistical challenges" - and the gig has now been cancelled after a suitable indoor venue could not be located.
In a statement, a spokesman for the promoters said "unforeseen production and logistical challenges associated with staging Neil Diamond's full show outdoors" had led to the cancellation.
Tickets for the show will be refunded.
