Neil DiamondNeil Diamond has doubled up his "Hot August Night" anniversary shows at the venue where the classic live album was recorded after the first two concerts sold out in minutes.

The Jazz Singer star performed 10 sold-out nights at the Greek theater in Los Angeles during the summer of 1972 and now he's almost halfway towards matching the feat 40 years later.

His two midsummer concerts on August 11 and 16 sold out quickly and now Diamond will play another two shows - on August 18 and 23.

Hot August Night remains Diamond's best-selling album ever.

His last concert at the Greek was in 1986.
