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.
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!!!!!
