Diamond was to perform in Wellington on March 4.
A statement released by the event's promoters cited "unforeseen production and logistical challenges associated with staging Neil Diamond's full show outdoors" as the reason for the cancellation.
Online tickets will be automatically refunded. Tickets bought over the counter can be refunded at the point of purchase.
Diamond will still perform at Auckland's Vector Arena on February 26 and 28. New allocations of tickets have been released for both shows.
What do you think is "unforeseen production and logistical blaa blaa outdoor blaa blaa..." a good reason to cancel a show that was always going to be outside?
Until next time keep rockin'
