The 8th Annual Last Waltz Revisited

Polytoxics’ The Last Waltz “Dry Your Eyes” 11/21/2012 Ogden Theater, Denver CO.

Dry Your Eyes
by Neil Diamond -Aaron Rose on vocal

Neil Diamond was next, introducing his “Dry Your Eyes” by saying, “I’m only gonna do one song, but I’m gonna do it good.” Robertson had also produced Diamond’s album Beautiful Noise the same year and co-wrote “Dry Your Eyes,” which during the concert he hailed as a “great song.” In his autobiography, Levon Helm was critical of the inclusion of Diamond, not discerning any musical connection to The Band. Reportedly, when Diamond came off stage he remarked to Dylan, “Follow that,” to which Dylan responded, “What do I have to do, go on stage and fall asleep?”[7]

Van Morrison then performed two songs, a special arrangement of “Tura Lura Lural (That’s an Irish Lullaby)” as a duet with Richard Manuel and his own show-stopper, “Caravan.”
