Neil Diamond performs 'Sweet Caroline' live in New York on New Years Eve

To celebrate the new year, Neil Diamond led a sing-a-long of his 1969 classic 'Sweet Caroline' in New York.

It is currently winter in New York so the temperature felt around -3° while he performed in Times Square on December 31, 2017.

Neil Diamond returns to New Zealand in March this year as part of his 50 year anniversary tour.
