COLUMBUS, Ohio — Neil Diamond has moved his Friday concert in St. Louis to Sept. 10 because of laryngitis.
The move was announced as disappointed fans were demanding a refund after Diamond's performance Monday at Ohio State University because the 67-year-old singer's voice sounded raspy.
Some fans left the concert early and others said Diamond completed the show without mentioning anything to the audience about his voice.
A statement from Diamond on Tuesday said a doctor had diagnosed acute laryngitis.
Value City Arena officials are offering a refund to those who put in a request before Sept. 5. Tickets for the concert ranged from $20 to $120.
Diamond, the singer of such hits as "Sweet Caroline" and "Song Sung Blue," posted a message on his Web site asking for fans' forgiveness. Another message said Wednesday's concert in Green Bay, Wis., will be rescheduled for Sept. 12.
