A Beautiful Noise, The Neil Diamond Musical will host “Nick at Nite: Nick Fradiani Sings More Neil,” a special a special one-night only, post-performance concert taking place Tuesday, February 6 at the Broadhurst Theatre (235 West 44th Street) headlined by the “American Idol” winner and members of the A Beautiful Noise band with special guest appearance by Amber Ardolino, who stars as ‘Marcia Murphey.’

The concert will feature highlight some of Fradiani’s favorite Diamond hits that were cut from the show. 

Fradiani said, “Neil had over 50 songs on Billboard’s Hot 100. At the stage door, so many people ask about their favorite song and while A Beautiful Noise is packed with hits, the creators had to leave some songs out. This is our chance to celebrate even more of his classic tunes. ‘Heartlight’ anyone?”

With his first break into songwriting in the 1960s and his meteoric rise in the 1970s, and plenty of crushing disappointments and heart-stopping triumphs along the way, Neil Diamond has maintained an almost unthinkable level of superstardom for five straight decades. How did a poor Jewish kid from Brooklyn become one of the most universally adored showmen of all time? There’s only one way Diamond wanted to tell it: a musical set to his era-defining smash hits that entranced the world.

Throughout his phenomenal and wide-ranging career, Neil Diamond has performed at  sold-out stadiums and arenas around the world, dominated the charts for more than five decades, sold over 130 million albums worldwide and achieved record sales.

A Grammy Award-winning artist, Diamond is a member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame. He has been presented with the Johnny Mercer Award, the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, and the Sammy Cahn Lifetime Achievement Award, three of the highest honors bestowed on songwriters and artists. He has also been the recipient of the NARAS Music Cares Person of The Year Award and the prestigious Kennedy Center Award for his contributions to American culture.

His music has earned him a multi-generational fanbase and he is a believer of the healing power of music. Through his charitable foundation, he has supported many causes close to his heart.
