Simon and Garfunkel gave a masterful performance tonight at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Like a fine wine, these gentlemen get better with age. Add a tremendous backup band and some midset numbers by the Everly Brothers, and you have one memorable night.

Some of the schtick between the two you´ve read in other interviews. One of the best lines of the night had Paul saying they don´t argue anymore. Garfunkel countered that they can still argue over his suggestion that the group´s name should be ´Garfunkel and Simon´. *chuckle*

Paul was outstanding on ´The Only Living Boy in New York´ ... and both of them on Bridge Over Troubled Waters. If that is not one of the finest pop songs ever written, I´ll eat my S&G album collection. Art´s voice is still there after all these years. I´ve seen Paul do this number in other shows (including an outstanding performance in 2001 at Tweeter in Camden), but it was wonderful to hear them both.

Added treat ... two solo songs of Pauls they did together, Slip Sliding Away and American Tune.

Folks, if you still have a chance to see them on tour, don´t hesitate. You´ll be glad you did.

Thank you Paul and Art, for such a memorable evening.

One word to descibe November 28....AMAZING!!! I could have gone to see them in my hometown (Wilkes-Barre), but I was away at college and so drove the 3 hours to Atlantic City. But it was well worth it. The traffic heading into the city was absolutley terrible and I was afraid I would miss the beginning of the concert, but we made it over an hour before they took the stage. I sat there and couldnt believe that I was seeing two legends in concert. Paul Simon is my absolute favorite musician of all time. I had seen him once before, so I was looking forward to seeing him with Garfunkel. They took the stage and I couldnt believe how good they sounded. The sold-out crowd of over 13,000 was in awe. They sang through an impressive set list. My personal favorites of the night included ´My Little Town´, ´Bridge Over Troubled Water´ (When Art hit the high note, it was truely memorable), ´Hazy Shade of Winter´, ´Only Living Boy In NY´, and ´Slip Slidin Away, but don´t get me wrong, every song was amazing. I was also impressed by the Everly Brothers. I enjoyed ´Bye,Bye Love´ because Simon and Garfunkel joined the Everly Brothers on stage. Even though the concert made me broke, remember I am a college student on a budget. $85 for a ticket, $35 for a t-shirt, $15 for a poster, $20 to park, $15 for tolls on the Atlantic City Expressway, $20 for dinner. Wow, Expensive, but so worth it. i will forever remember this night. Paul and Artie looked like they really enjoyed being there. Both cracked jokes and Paul smiled throughout. Art waved many times to the audience(including me :) ) and was always saying ´thank you´ to the crowd. An amazing night in Nj!!!!!
