Gary Ryan the undisputed No.1 tribute to Neil Diamond in the UK.
In the mid 90’s, Gary applied for and gained a place on the popular TV series “Stars In Their Eyes” as Neil Diamond! He won his heat and went on to appear in the first ever “live” grand final of that same TV series. He came a proud second place in the final, and at the time there was a dispute in the media of telephone lines “failing” due to the unprecedented response from the public. 13 million viewers were reported to have tuned into the program that evening, a night Gary and the rest of the finalist’s of that series will never forget!
After his appearance on Stars In Their Eyes, Gary went on to work all over the World portraying one of his favourite Singer / Songwriters. He also joined the original line up of “Legends” show, which then was called, “The Great Legends Of Rock”. As time has proven this became a very popular show and Gary carried on performing in the “Legend’s” in UK theatre’s, two tours of New Zealand and all around Europe, at corporate event’s also in front of celebrity audiences and Royalty alike. He was even asked to sing “personally” to Ivana Trump on one occasion!
More recently Gary is a regular for the major cruise lines including P&O, Royal Caribbean and Thomson Cruises.
