The timeless music of Neil Diamond will be performed in the Diamond Forever show on Saturday in Sylvan Lake.

Singer Jason Scott, who performs in this one-man stage show at the local Royal Canadian Legion, was the only Canadian Neil Diamond tribute artist chosen to appear in a feature-length movie called Play Me. The film will take a real-life backstage look at the trials of being a professional tribute artist.

In his stage show, Scott will perform songs from Diamond’s six-decade career. His music is complex “and has that universality and timelessness that transcends his own personality,” says Scott, who has recorded, toured with nightclub and concert bands, and performed across the continent, including at Disneyworld and on cruise ships.

In 2005, his Neil Diamond performance won the Be A Legend celebrity tribute artist competition in Las Vegas, the first of several other competition wins. And in 2012, Scott broke attendance records when he performed his show at the Freemont Street Experience at Las Vegas. Tickets to his 7:30 p.m. local show are $20 from the Sylvan Lake Legion. For more information, call 403-887-2601.
