Super Diamond Tickets for Sale

Super Diamond is a San Francisco-based tribute band for the legendary Neil Diamond. It was formed 10 years ago as a side act, it is headed by Randy Cordeiro, better known as Surreal Neil. Cordeiro is a 38-year-old singer-songwriter whose voice has an uncanny resemblance to that of Mr. Neil Diamond. The band is a rage all over the US and regularly fills mid-size concert halls around the country, like the Irving Plaza in Manhattan and the House of Blues in Hollywood. The band commands a performing fee of up to $20,000 a performance, ticket prices for the band's concerts are as high as $30 a piece.

"The Surreal Neil," Randy Cordeiro has astonished audiences with his live impersonations of the real Neil. Randy. He discovered his talent in 1989 when he discovered he had the ability to capture not only Diamond's voice, but also his mannerisms and performance style. Along with Cordeiro a select group of top stunt musicians bring to life the Neil Diamond concert experience. For tribute bands like Super Diamond, there is no radio time or royalties from album sales, so they rely completely on touring to earn a living. Super Diamond plays about 120 shows a year around the country — from nightclub concerts to corporate parties and weddings.
Despite the success of Super Diamond, Cordeiro is still committed to his original music band, Tijuana Strip Club. He admits that he has mixed feelings about the genre he has helped to popularize. "Even though I'm in a cover band, it hurts me to see so many cover bands popping up all the time," he said. "People just go and support cover bands and not original bands. It's sad. I guess I just have myself to blame."

Cordeiro and the members of Super Diamond say that they stand out above the many tribute bands that keep popping up because they don't just play the Neil Diamond songs, instead, they use Mr. Diamond's songs to create their "own" music. They call their performances, "Neil Diamond on steroids," Super Diamond interprets Mr. Diamond's pop tunes with heavier guitars, they also fuse contemporary riffs by Guns N' Roses, Kiss and AC/DC with an alternative-rock tone.

"We've taken the rock aspect of Neil Diamond and pushed that to the extreme," said Rama Kolesnikow, Super Diamond's keyboardist. "I think we're even more original than some original bands." One of Super Diamond's biggest fan is Neil Diamond himself. The 62-year-old Grammy Award-winning pop singer has appeared twice onstage with his impersonators, the first time was a few years ago when he surprised the band before their show at the House of Blues in Los Angeles. "It was amazing," Mr. Cordero said. "I remember he said to us, `Thank you for doing what you're doing,' and I said, `Thank you for not suing us.' " Then onstage Mr. Diamond and the band of pretenders played "I Am . . . I Said."
