Review by:

Just got back from Northrop and an early birthday celebration, just a couple of hours before the clock ticks midnight and Paul turns 65. The set was quite similar to the reports from previous shows, but with the songs mixed around a good bit (sorry can´t remember the precise setlist) and a twist or two added: As it sounds like he did in Denver, he added Train in the Distance midway through the set and it really chugged along. It was one of the show´s highlights, I thought, along with Only Living Boy in New York, Duncan, Graceland and a very spirited rendition of That Was Your Mother. From reading the other reports, it sounded like he switched the encores up a bit, pairing You Can Call Me Al with Still Crazy After All These Years and Mrs. Robinson for the first encore, a solo acoustic version of Wartime Prayers with Bridge and Late in the Evening and finally ending with the Boxer. He didn´t bring Jerry Douglass back out for the finale, but instead had his son Harper (previously mentioned Thursday night in Train in the Distance lyrics) join him and play guitar on the final two numbers. When Paul came back out for the finale, he said he never would have imagined 35 years ago that he´d be singing the Boxer on such a milestone birthday. Several yahoos yelled Happy Birthday to him throughout the show and his spirits really seemed to build as the evening progressed. A great venue (4,500-seat Northrop Auditorium), the sound was dandy and a pretty magical evening that seemed to have a little extra special significance for him.
