The concert was as good a performance as I have seen in years. A very tight band a great mix of old and new, brilliant new arrangements on the the songs from the old days.....not a single thing to complain about,it was perfect. Come back soon please Paul! If you are in New York Or Boston for his next shows, run to see him, it was great.

Review by:

His concert last night was amazing.
Fresh and new moves to the oldies
His new stuff was fantastic
People were dancing in their seats
Critics suck and don´t know what they are talking about
The guy is 65 afterall...
Let´s see them move like that after 3 hours of playing to an audience.
See him in concert if youcan!

Review by:

Great concert.
Was way up at the top of the hall - only wish I would have had better seats.
Played a wide selection of tunes from many periods which was fun.
The crowd were really into the show and gave several standing ovations, which got 3 or 4 encores out of Paul and the band. For one encore he came out and did a solo version of ´War time prayer´ which was particularly beautiful.
Paul mentioned that he ´liked the room´, and it is a a good venue - the sound was excellent.
I´d love to follow the show for 3 or 4 concerts.
I think it´s great that the tour is playing smaller venues, the feeling of his songwriting comes across very well.

Review by:

I´m a sixteen year old, who went to the concert not knowing THAT much Paul Simon, but being a big fan of Simon & Garfunkel, and the little amount of Simon songs I know. I don´t think it could´ve been any better, even if I knew every song. This band is so incredibly talented, Paul Simon is such an unbelievable songwriter and performer, and to see a room full of people so much older than me at a show where I felt more energy than so many other shows I´ve been to with people closer to my age, was a really unique experience for me. Somehow I managed to get third row seats for this, and it´s a night I know I´ll remember and cherish for the rest of my life. Highlights for me were ´The Boxer´ with Jerry Douglas on dobro, and Still Crazy After All These Years. I also loved when everyone got up and danced up and down the aisles.
