Reply to "What concerts have you been to lately?"

Paul Simon last night at the ACC.

Fantastic 14-piece band behind him and they were all superb. Most were multi-instrumentalists (guitar player also played sax, drummer played guitar on one song, the various string section members also sang and some played brass). Depending on the song, there might have been 4 musicians on stage or all 15.

Every one of them was at the top of their game.

As for Paul, he was in fine form. I saw his PBS Austin City Limits performance from about 18 months ago and he played and sang well but seemed lethargic. Last night he had great energy. And he sang really well.

He commented briefly on the weekend's anti-Canada comments, calling it idiotic and saying that the American people don't feel that way about Canada. "We're all family."

A 2 1/2 show with no breaks. As a friend said on FB "how does a guy in his late 70s go 2 1/2 hours without having to pee?"

An excellent setlist with representation from all stages of his career:
