Los Angeles and New York City are the only stops on Neil Diamond’s 50-Year Anniversary World Tour next year to have two performances. L.A. brings up the rear when the Hall of Famer arrives Aug. 10 and 12 at The Forum in Inglewood.

Tickets for the general public go on sale Dec. 9 at livenation.com.

But ticket-resellers are now taking orders, such as Vivid with seats starting at $129.

Wikipedia says: “Vivid Seats is a member of the National Association of Ticket Brokers and is a Better Business Bureau Accredited Business since 2003. In a 2014 breakdown of Vivid Seats by LegitTicketReviews.com, the company was found to be an excellent online ticket provider overall, with the reviewer noting that the only negative aspect to Vivid Seats is its inability to guarantee exact seat locations.”

Others aren’t so pleased with Vivid Seats, including a slew of critical comments posted here.

Michael Rapino, president and CEO of the organizing Live Nation Entertainment, said: “Neil Diamond is more than just a music icon. His singular artistry and talent has left an indelible mark on American culture and has helped shape the sound of popular music for five decade.”

Diamond, 75, was in the Southland only last year, performing at the Hollywood Bowl in May.
