One of the best concerts I’ve ever
attended. Paul was an expert
showman, and so energetic. His
band was tight and his voice smooth.
Came out for two encores. Great
variety . Seriously could not get
enough. If you have a chance to
attend, don’t pass it up!
Anne from New York, New York
Paul took “my” music and elevated it with genius, creative, brilliant
arrangements, keeping enough of the integrity of the originals for PS
purists. Every member of his band was a virtuoso. Renee Magritte was
unbelievable. His string/wind arrangements were wildly intricate and
the group played without charts!, for 2.5 hours. He sang acapella
above them. And the world musicians all around him and the band
regulars just blew my mind.
For 2.5 hours the entire world was aligned perfectly. Ahhhhhhhhhh,!
Gus Elsner from Boynton Beach , FL
STILL THE BEST AFTER ALL THESE YEARS
super concert at BB&T , september 8, 2018. Sang for 2.5 hours , including 2 encores. The
band was complex and outstanding with brass, string and a multitude of
unconventional instruments, in addition to the typical percussion and guitars. A great
set list which combined some of the classics with the latest by Paul. Overall, a concdert
to remember, just like the central park concert minus the 485000 attendees!

EVEN BETTER THAN THE PHILADELPHIA CONCERT
I am an admited groupie.
I saw him and his band in Philadelphia in June. My friend and I both agree that the DC
performance was better than the one in Philadelphia. Several reasons. The DC crowd
was much better behaved. More importantly, the band has become tighter and Ymusic
much more integrated with the other musicians. The performance of "Rene and Georgia
Magritte. . . " seemed disjoined in Philadelphia while it was beyond lovely in DC. The
only downside was that the acoustics in DC were a notch below the acoustics in
I have heard Paul Simon in concert many times going back to my days as a student at
the University of Pennsylvania (College '70). He never disappoints.
Olga Sepulveda from Dallas, Texas
Paul Simon could not of made it any more
perfect. From start to finish he he was
incredible. His voice was never better. His
band just mesmerized you on their talent.
You clung to every word he spoke and every
song he sang. No one wanted it to end. Thank
you Paul Simon for your contribution to the
World with your music.
Catherine from Boston, Massachusetts
IT WAS A LOVE-FEST!
Saw Paul Simon’s farewell tour
concert at the full-to-the-rafters
Garden last night, it was a mix of
sing-along and just sit and listen,
mesmerized, to new arrangements of
some great old chestnuts. Simon’s
energy, love of music came shining
through all during the over 2-1/2
hours, in fine voice, and arms open
wide to his audience. Loved the band,
Dick Gordon from Greensboro, North Carolina
VINTAGE AND FUTURE SIMON
My wife and I saw Paul Simon Tuesday night at the Greensboro Coliseum. I went and
bought very good seats the first day tickets were available. This is the music of my life;
Sounds of Silence as a young teenager, to Graceland- which my young children adored.
It would not matter what decade it was from the 60s to now, Paul Simon is a true genius
that has helped us all piece together our collective memories. It was a truly great
performance with an amazing band of modern world sounds.
Seward Anderson from Greensboro, North Carolina
STILL GENIUS AFTER ALL THESE YEARS
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.

PAUL SIMON (FAREWELL TOUR)
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

HOMEWARD BOUND TOUR
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.
Michael Reed from Greensboro, North Carolina
HARD TO BELIEVE!
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
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

PAUL SIMON JUNE 1 W2018 DALLAS
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
Mike Ratoza from Portland, Oregon
SO AMAZING AFTER ALL THESE YEARS
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
Steve B. from Boston, Massachusetts
SIMON SAYS-AND THE FANS LOVE IT!
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.

PAUL SIMON AT PRUDENTIAL CENTER NEWARK, NJ
Paul Simon sounded better than ever and his back up band and singers were excellent. The concert went on for about 2.5 hours. It was a mixture of songs from him solo albums as well as his S&G days. Based on the age of the crowd, I think many of us would have liked a few more oldes. There was no Mrs. Robinson, no Cecelia, no I Am a Rock, no 59th St Bridge Song,. (just to name a few)
The venue was packed. All employees are super friendly. The Prudential Center is so much easier to get in and out of than MSG.
Angus McPherson from Vancouver, British Columbia
THANK YOU PAUL!! A CONCERT TO REMEMBER.
We knew going into the concert that we would not be able to
hear all of his greatest songs, just hoping to hear as many
songs from Bridge Over Troubled Waters and secretly hoping
for specific songs like Frank Lloyd Wright, Cecilia, I am a Rock
among others while knowing that I would hear The Sounds of
Silence, Graceland and The Boxer.
The musicians were tight and right on beat, always watching
the expert directions to further enhance the music.
My only regret is that it took over 53 years to see and hear
the talent of Paul Simon.
I figure that if your biggest regret about going to a concert
is/was that you wish it could be longer or see them perform
again and again then you have nothing to complain about,
only praise to be given to the talent, the skills, the humanity
and all around good people/ person.
Thank you again, Paul for an unforgetable evening!
Taaly Silberstein from Tarzana, California
This was my fifth Paul Simon concert (including a Simon and Garfunkel reunion
The venue was the Hollywood Bowl, and I was a little concerned because the last time I
saw him there, he seemed a little lackluster; perhaps he was no longer "still crazy after
all these years." But how could I miss his farewell tour? So I went. I was not
disappointed. Paul Simon peppered the concert with anecdotal stories about his
songwriting process, and conducted his superb cast of musicians with aplomb. The
result was a series of curated selections that well represented his vast repertoire of
songs. His diction was so clear, and that allowed me to be wowed - yet again - at the
genius of his lyrics. The music itself was well executed by all the musicians, and really
beautiful. I would highly recommend this concert for the new Paul Simon listener as
well as for the aficionado. So very worth it.
Karen Burstyn from Los Angeles, California
Paul Simon is an amazing prolific talent. Songwriter and performer! Saw him last night
at the Hollywood Bowl (5/22/18) and he rocked the house. Amazing energy!!
What a gift to see him perform again. I saw him in the late 1980s and again in the early
1990s in New York with the wonderful musicians from South Africa.
J A Christiansen from Portland, Oregon
Paul SImon was beautiful and charming. All of the musicians were fabulous!!! A
wonderful night of music and nostalgia!!! We were pleased with our sears, Sec 112. We
do wish people would not stand up for so many of the songs. (Paul actually encouraged
dancing. darn) We took Lyft and it was very timely.
Ray white from Los Angeles, California
GREAT SHOW BY SIIMON
Very good show by Paul simon...from classics to newer stuff,
his backing band/vocalists were superb!
Go so this show...
W.S. from Seattle, Washington
Too bad. Paul put on an amazing show during his SO BEAUTIFUL SO WHAT tour a few
years ago; his May 2018 Seattle concert was not that. The lack of energy at this show was
a major disappointment. While there doesn't seem to be a bad seat in the house at Key
Arena, it didn't seem like anybody was having much fun. Perhaps his concerts later in the
tour will be more festive and lively.
