Tracy was apprehended by Middletown Police after being caught in the act during another robbery back on April 13th, 2011.(Examiner.com)

Neil Diamond will be the recipient of this year's Legend of Live award at the 2012 Billboard Touring Awards ceremony. The festivities will be held on November 8th at Manhattan's Roosevelt Hotel. Diamond said in a statement: "There is no musical expression that quite compares with that of presenting your work to a live audience. It is the kind of experience that can both exhilarate and humble you at the same time. I'm honored to receive Billboard's Legend of Live Award, and to have had the opportunity to perform live to audiences all over the world for the past 45 years. For me, there is no higher musical calling." (Billboard)
