Tom also went to see the shows of two other Neil Diamond celebrity impersonators while in Las Vegas: Rick Pierce, who lives in Las Vegas and performs as Neil Diamond there, and, at The Frontier hotel and casino, and Jay White who later had a show at The Riviera. Both shows were great and go a long way toward a "Neil Fix"!

True Neil Diamond fans know that Neil spent time working in the Catskills during his young adult years. Well, recently Tom traveled to the Catskills for some private bookings at a very plush resort.

What a thrill to meet Neil Diamond for the second time! You can see from the photo (upper left) that it was a moment Tom will never forget. Thanks, Neil, for taking the time to pose with Tom and thanks, Brenda, for being there to take the photo.

By the way, while in Pigeon Forge,Tennessee during the summer and fall of 2001, it was an honor to perform for, and visit with, some of the world's best Neil Diamond fans who traveled up from all coasts to see Tom perform as Neil Diamond.

By the way, Pigeon Forge is also the home of Dollywood and many other attractions, theatres, resorts, and restaurants...It was very exciting for Tom to be performing as Neil Diamond under a Tennessee Moon.

Tom has performed his Neil Diamond impersonation in too many major venues to list here. He has entertained audiences from coast to coast...from Toronto to Florida, from Vancouver to Nevada, and many places in between.

During 1998-1999, Tom Sadge, as Neil Diamond, toured with Legends Alive across Canada, where the famous troupe were booked into almost every major arena from Toronto to Vancouver and up into the Yukon.

However, the filming of a special Neil Diamond concert, which was included in Dennis Dugan's movie, Saving Silverman at the PNE Coliseum in Vancouver was very exciting...especially for Tom Sadge! On July 9, 1999 and July 19, 1998 Tom Sadge performed his Neil Diamond impersonation in front of several thousand audience members at the PNE. Tom Sadge has also performed at the First Union Arena in Wilkes-Barre, PA, where Neil performed 2 sold out shows in December, 1999. Tom can now say he performed twice on the same stage as the legendary Neil Diamond...although not at the same time.

As many Diamond fans know, Tom also had the great pleasure of meeting with Neil Diamond on December 12, 1999...just like the "Diamond in the Rough" tribute group portrayed in Saving Silverman. (The Arizona Republic also entitled an article on Tom "Diamond in the Rough"). Amazing coincidences....art really does imitate life. Since that time, Tom as met Neil Diamond on at least two other occasions.

Tom has come a long way since the events posted above.
