Neil Diamond will perform in concert this summer at Fenway Park in Boston.

The singer made the announcement in a big-screen broadcast at the Boston Red Sox home opener yesterday (April 8), 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.
