Spend a hot August night at FAC


dominic-finley-300x300Hear Neil Diamond’s legendary Hot August Night album in its entirety – one of the best-selling albums in Australian music history – 1 in 3 homes has a copy!

The show also features interesting stories about how the songs were created, and of Diamond’s dark journey from being a struggling Brooklyn poet, to becoming one of the worlds most loved performers.

As well as being a celebration of Diamond’s greatest hits, Hot August Night and Me, offers its audience so much more.

Performer Dominic Finley is a former member of 80s chart toppers Cutting Crew (known for their number 1 hit I Just Died

in your Arms), and has a background worlds apart from Diamond’s New York upbringing in the ‘Tin Pan Alley’ days of Broadway.

Finley’s is the world of cobbled streets, terrace houses, and a show business grounding won out of the gritty working men’s clubs in Lancashire, in the North of England.

‘Lost between two shores’ Finley’s story leads to his eventual emigration to Australia, a true Neil Diamond country!

Hot August Night and Me will be at Frankston Arts Centre on Friday 7 August at 8pm.

Tickets on 9784 1060 or at thefac.com.au
