A Neil Diamond tribute act performer who has been a hit all around the country is back in Northamptonshire in February to perform his hit show in Kettering.

Fisher Stevens, who also performs as Elvis, was a builder until he made his debut on a Las Vegas stage.

During the past year he's been touring the country with his Beautiful Noise tour - a celebration of the music of 100 million album-selling Neil Diamond. His tour included The Lyric theatre in London's West End.

With a fully live band, including brass and strings, backing singers, dancers, A Beautiful Noise includes Diamond's greatest songs Sweet Caroline, Song Sung Blue, Cracklin’ Rosie and Forever In Blue Jeans.

Fisher said: "A Beautiful Noise has been awesome, the reviews have been fantastic, and performing the show in London, and in the West End, was a dream come true, an amazing experience,”

A lifelong lover of Neil Diamond, Fisher has toured the world as a performer and said, “I am supported by an experienced band and backing singers who are all as passionate about Neil Diamond as I am."

The tribute show was helped to achieve the high standards of Diamond’s class by David Mackay, who created hits for some of the biggest names in the music including Cliff Richard, Dusty Springfield, The Bee Gees and Clapton. David was the musical director for many West End successes including 125th Street and Jailhouse Rock

The show will arrive at the Kettering Lighthouse Theatre on Friday, February 22. Tickets are available via the box office on 01536 414141 or online.
