I first heard Paul Simon’s work in my dorm room at the University of Virginia in 1965– “ Sounds of Silence.” All who heard it were struck by the beauty and poignancy of the work. It’s 53 years later, age 77 and his voice, energy, and musical acumen are not diminished. What a fabulous performance! It was not a concert: it was a performance by 15 consummate professionals. Two hours twenty minutes of non stop auditory excitement. He finally took vocal ownership of “ Bridge Over Troubled Water” and the audience thanked him mightily. A night to remember and cherish.

My first Simon concert. Wow! Hit all the notes. Drew tears with the old ballads and standing dance with rockin hits, a great anthology of his infinite talent. His voice is still boyish and clear and oh so recognizable! And the mini orchestra was especially talented. The sound at the Garden makes live fun again. One gets the feeling Paul and company are really savoring this one. As am I! Boston is a great place to do it up! Hotels in walking distance along the Charles River with many dining/drinking options before or after show. So glad we went!

Saw Simon and Garfunkel in 2003 here in Boston and thought that this performance couldn't match that one. Thinking that a 70+ singer couldn't hit the notes he once did, and also thinking it would be a short unenthusiastic Paul...I was wrong on all counts and very pleasantly surprised. Terrific show. Terrific back up musicians. I hope his last stop on his Homeward Bound Tour is his own New York, and that it is filmed and shown on PBS next year.

If you have doubts about Paul Simon's ability to crank out a high energy, amazingly fresh, and superiorly orchestrated show at his over 70 years, put those doubts aside and BUY THE TICKETS! Saw the show last night at the Greensboro Colesium. Phenomenal! The band was versatile and easily went from West African rhythms to zydeco, to exquisite chamber ensemble, to dixieland, avante garde, to American classic rock and rock and roll ala Paul Simon at his finest!

Amazing concert. Great rapport with the audience. One of the best bands I've ever heard in over 50 years of concerts. Would go again if he tours again

The breadth of Paul Simon’s body of work beginning in the 1960s can take one’s breadth away. And Paul performed all of his great hits, and some less-we’ll-known tunes, last night in the Portland version of his Farewell Tour. Paul has played Portland in the past, to be sure, when his hair was fuller and his voice smoother. But even in his mid 70’s, his performance last night demonstrated again how amazing is his songwriting talent, his melodies, his rhymes, and his song construction. Paul and his band played his hits with a new twist, changing the presentations from the radio versions. And this is what one wants from a concert—something new, yet tethered to the original. Paul delivered, and he continues to be amazing, after all these years.

Just saw the Boston show at TD Center-A beautiful, 2-1/2 hour performance (including encores) by Paul and his incredibly talented band. About 2 dozen songs were performed- from megahits to some lesser known ones. He weaved in humorous anecdotes between some of the songs, and seemed to feed off the energy of a very loving audience.My highlights-a very personal "Bridge" (quite different without Garfunkel but still great in Simon's style), a soulful "American Tune" that still resonates today, 45 years after Paul wrote it, "You Can Call Me Al" which really got the place hopping, and the very humorous "Wrist Band". Catch this show if you can-it's just about perfect! And suitable for the whole family.
