I was at Paul´s show at Poplar Creek in Hoffman Estates, just outside of Chicago, on August 18, 1984. The place was far from sold out and partway through the show, the management let people from the lawn come under the pavilion just to fill up the empty seats. Despite that, Paul gave an incredible performance.

I was at this concert like the previous reviewer. Mr. Simon played solo. On stage was a semi-circle of different guitars behind him. My memory says the there were 10 to 12. Also behind him was a large boom box that he played along with recorded music. The pavilion part of the theater was so sparsely populated that Mr. Simon requested that all lawn denizens move down to the pavilion seats. My party sat dead center in the eighth row. It was an intimate and fantastic show.
