Neil Diamond to play at July 4th concert in Boston

June 1, 2009 6:03:49 PM PDT
Boston's Fourth of July celebration will include a performance by Neil Diamond, whose "Sweet Caroline" is an anthem of sorts for Red Sox fans.

Diamond will join conductor Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops for the traditional concert and fireworks spectacular on the Charles River Esplanade. That's not far from Fenway Park, where fans sing along with "Sweet Caroline" during every game, and where Diamond played a concert last summer.

Sponsors say about a half-million people attend the free show each year.

The final hour from 10 to 11 p.m. will be televised nationally by CBS.
