Poll: What Did You Think of Steven Tyler, Neil Diamond, And Dr. Dre At The Red Sox Game?By Travis Woods
Last Sunday night’s match-up at Boston’s Fenway Park between hometown heroes the Red Sox and bitter rivals the New York Yankees featured a musical invasion of sorts, with appearances by Dr. Dre, Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, and God… er, Neil Diamond (don’t even make a joke—I will gladly knife-fight anyone who makes fun of the Diamond), with both Tyler and Diamond turning in musical performances of, let’s say, ‘varying’ quality.
Live Daily reports that Dr. Dre appeared pre-show to hawk a new set of Red Sox-themed headphones, called “Beats By Dre,” while Interscope chairman Jimmy Iovine talked up Dre’s new single with Jay-Z, “Under Pressure.”
Later, during the seventh inning, Tyler showed up with his daughter to bizarrely strangle, bludgeon and, finally, brutally murder “God Bless America” with a series of wailing caterwauls too painful to truly describe. Watch the YouTube clip if you’re curious, or if you’re simply interested in snuff films.
Thankfully, Neil Diamond arrived to save the day in all his winking, Shatner-esque camp, running onto the field to perform “Sweet Caroline” during the eighth inning. Seriously, you’ve gotta check this out. It’s amazing. And good luck getting the song out of your head anytime soon.
