Good times never seemed so good! Nick Fradiani, who is currently starring as Neil Diamond in A Beautiful Noise on Broadway, will lead the musical's North American tour after the Broadway production closes June 30. The multi-year tour will launch at the Providence Performing Arts Center in Providence, Rhode Island in the fall of 2024.

Fradiani, who won American Idol in 2015, took over the role of Diamond in 2023, marking his Broadway debut. The announcement that he will lead the tour was made on the 2024 season finale of American Idol, after Fradiani sang a medley of Diamond's "America" and "Sweet Caroline" with some of the show's finalists. 

The first year of the tour will see stops at over 25 cities, including the Blumenthal Performing Arts in Charlotte, North Carolina. Click here for a tour itinerary. Additional casting will be announced at a later date.

“Some of my most thrilling nights have been while I was on tour, bringing my music to audiences across the world,” Diamond said in an earlier statement. “Having A Beautiful Noise go on tour is an honor and I can’t wait for audiences across North America to experience this show. I hope they enjoy it as much as I have.”

The tour will be lead produced by Ken Davenport, Bob Gaudio, and NETworks Presentations.

“Neil is one of the best live entertainers the world has ever seen," Davenport said in an earlier statement. "In his 50-year career, he’s performed for millions of fans around the globe. I couldn’t imagine a more perfect way to honor his legacy than having A Beautiful Noise touring North America, visiting the same cities where he gave so many people so much joy. I look forward to launching the tour in Providence, Rhode Island, a city that has been in love with Neil’s music for decades and where Neil himself performed almost a dozen times.”

“When Neil and I first started talking about making a musical using his music, I knew how daunting that would be," Gaudio added. "With Jersey Boys, I learned how vital it is to have a first-rate creative team making sure everything weaves together. We have that on A Beautiful Noise—an incisive book that tells Neil’s story honestly, fantastic choreography, one of the best directors on Broadway guiding the entire production, and of course, Neil’s iconic songs. Having the show go on tour is an exciting next step and I look forward to being there on opening night in Providence.”
