Fans who attended this show
One of the very best concerts I have attended at The Point ... worth it alone for Andy Snitzer´s hair-raisingly magnificent sax-solo on ´Still Crazy After All These Years´ - only one of so many many many highlights! ´Wartime Prayers´ with Paul Simon singing to his own guitar backing was breath taking and the hushed audience responded to the prayers with reverend raptured attention. On the way out many people simply said ´wasn´t that just brilliant?... but asked of strangers as though to share the experience of hearing the soundtrack to so many of our lives sung with passion and respect, sheer brilliance and a lot of joy. Well done Mr Paul Simon ... you certainly made up for the wishy-washy S&G Concert in the RDS some time back!

What a show, how does he continue to churn out these exceptional performances? This was my third Paul Simon concert and without doubt the best so far, no monetary value can be placed on witnessing this lyrical genius live. There were so many highlights of the night from the ´Graceland´ classics to ´Bridge..´ and ´The Boxer´, but the masterpiece for me was ´The Only Living Boy in New York´, quite simply an immense performance. Keep coming back Paul.
Jason from Wexford
what can you say about it.It was something very special and very lucky to witness,He seemed mesmorised by the crowd at the end and genuinely happy at what he had just done, A marvelous night and a true genius at work, Thank you Mr Simon
I saw S&G way back in the 80´s at the showjumping arena, then Paul Simon on the Rythm of the saints tour in Belfast King´s Hall, S&G at the RDS again and finally Paul in the Point. Two things stand out in my memory - Hearts and Bones and Wartime Prayers. Astoundingly beautiful guitar work, atmosphere you could cut a knife with and respect for a genuis in his element.

It was a splendid night at the Point, Dublin. An outstanding performance with great musicians. If I was being hypercritical, I found it a bit annoying the amount of movement on and off the stage. Musicians kept coming and going if they weren´t needed and in the middle of the songs too and then they slithered back in later in the same song. And roadies sneaking in down low at various times. I really felt it lacked discipline but hey you couldn´t fault the music and that´s what it´s all about. I never was at a concert with so many encore numbers; we all certainly got our monies worth. My highlight was Homeward Bound - just Paul and a guitar and a few thousand Irish voices - all of them in tune! Magic!
Once again a magnificent performance!! This was 6th time to see Paul live, 2 S&G and 4 solo, the solos are always better. Highlights Train in the distance, wartime Prayers. new versions of YTO and BTOW wow!!
