This spring, Neil Diamond will embark on a massive 50th anniversary world tour to celebrate the anniversary of his first single, "Solitary Man," which he released in 1966. The tour will launch on April 7 in Fresno, California at the SaveMart Center and will make 39 stops across North America before concluding in on Aug. 12 after two nights in Los Angeles at the The Forum.

Neil Diamond tickets are on sale and rising in price, with heavy demand on the secondary market. Currently, resale tickets for the trek are averaging $292 with high price points in cities like New York City and St. Paul. Neil Diamond's first show at the Save Mart Center in Fresno is averaging $245, with the cheapest ticket priced at $53.

Most recently, the 75-year-old performer released a Seasonal LP, The Christmas Medley (Acoustic Christmas) , with renditions of holiday classics such as "O Holy Night" and "Silent Night," as well as originals like "Christmas Prayers." He was able to showcase a medley of these Christmas songs at this year's Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting ceremony in New York City. The album marked Diamond's 38th top 10 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary radio airplay chart in the week ending Dec. 22.
