BOSTON (AP) – Singer Neil Diamond will perform in concert later this summer at Fenway Park in Boston.

Diamond made the announcement in a big-screen broadcast at the Red Sox home opener Tuesday, during the traditional eighth-inning sing-along of his “Sweet Caroline,” which has become an anthem for Boston fans.

The Red Sox unveiled a new scoreboard video of Diamond in a Red Sox jacket singing his 1969 hit. Red Sox owner Tom Werner also appeared in the video.

The Aug. 23 concert will be part of Diamond’s upcoming world tour.
