The show at the Bloomfield Road ground is the last one - and the only outdoors venue - on the European leg of his world tour.

To mark the occasion the final tickets available for the show are now on offer with today’s Gazette. Fans of the Sweet Caroline star can get their hands on these special £20 seats by taking a copy of the paper to the ticket office at the ground.

Peter Taylor, director of Cuffe and Taylor the event promoters, said: “The build is looking great ahead of the Neil Diamond concert tomorrow.

“We are delighted to be bringing such a world class star to Blackpool and look forward to what promises to be an absolutely fantastic night.

“As a thank you to Gazette readers for their support we would like to offer them the chance to buy the last remaining seats at £20 by taking a copy of today’s newspaper with these great photographs to the ticket office at Blackpool FC.”

All tickets will be in the Armfield Stand, and can be bought at the ticket office from 10am today, on a first come, first served basis. Neil Diamond is due on stage at 7.30pm.
