London: Neil Diamond will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of his groundbreaking ‘Hot August Night’ live album by unveiling a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame next month.
The 71-year-old singer will be honoured with the 2,475th star on August 10 in front of the Capitol Records Building.
Hollywood Chamber of Commerce officials have been trying to get him to give a date for years.
“We finally were able to pin him down for a date to dedicate his star,” the Daily Express quoted spokeswoman Ana Martinez as saying.
“This is one busy man and we are thrilled to honour this legendary performer,” she said.
