Neil Diamond released his first album, The Feel of Neil Diamond, in 1966.
That's 50 years of recorded music for the man who would eventually release "Sweet Caroline," "Forever in Blue Jeans," and "Cracklin' Rose."

Tickets for The 50-Year Anniversary World Tour go on sale December 9 at www.livenation.com.
