I was fortunate enough to see him and Garfunkel at the SkyDome on November 11 of last year. I paid $75 for tickets, but definitely worth it. If it┤s the only time I┤ll ever get to see my musical hero in concert, I won┤t regret it. He was fantastic (but I would have liked to see Ladysmith Black Mambazo as well) and I think they did a very good set. I was most surprised to hear ┤Hearts and Bones┤ in among a lot of S&G stuff. I and a friend were just about the only ones to recognize the intro and we clapped wildly.


┤American Tune┤ in harmony was simply breathtaking--but I was so upset that the world┤s best ending was taken out. (They faded, repeating, ┤That┤s all I┤m trying...┤) But the mere fact that they performed that song was enough to make me happy.

I have been a fan of Paul since I first heard Homeless around age 10. My first unchaperoned concert was Simon and Garfunkel on November 12, 1993 in Toronto, when I was 16. I was BLOWN AWAY by how amazing the show was. Graceland is consistently in my top 3 albums of all time by anyone, often taking the number one position. I can┤t imagine how phenomenally moving it would be to see Paul and Ladysmith revisit this album live, but I hope to see it someday (hint, hint).

The crescendo section in the middle of The Boxer will forever give me goosebumps...┤and cut him ┤til he cried out in his anger and his shame, I am leaving, I am leaving, but the fighter still remains.┤ Breathtaking. Thank you for making such beautiful music.
