– Paul Simon Captured Live in Concert in Rare Club Appearance
Performing Classic Songs and Music From His Critically Acclaimed New Album 'So Beautiful or So What' –
In June 2011, Paul Simon thrilled hometown fans with a special club performance at New York City’s historic
Webster Hall. The show was the culmination of a sold-out, triumphant, two-month U.S. tour. The resulting PAUL SIMON:
LIVE AT WEBSTER HALL, NEW YORK captures this extraordinary event. The program airs Thursday, Dec. 8 from 7-8:30 p.m.
The set list was drawn from his legendary career and includes several songs that haven’t been performed live
in many years. “Kodachrome,” “Mother and Child Reunion,” “Gone at Last” and “The Obvious Child” are just some of the
highlights along with songs from Simon’s recently released, brilliant new album So Beautiful or So What (Hear
Music/Concord Music Group), including “Dazzling Blue,” “Rewrite,” “The Afterlife” and the album’s propulsive title track.
Joining Simon on the show is a stellar band of musicians that includes Cameroonian guitarist Vincent Nguini,
guitarist/drummer Jim Oblon, pianist Mick Rossi, saxophonist/ keyboardist Andrew Snitzer, bassist Bakithi Kumalo, guitarist
Mark Stewart, master percussionist Jamey Haddad and multi-instrumentalist Tony Cedras.
Paul Simon, the first recipient of the Library of Congress’ George Gershwin Award for Popular Song in 2007,
is one of the most treasured musical performers in American history. This is an incredible musical event from an iconic
artist who continues to work at the peak of his artistic and creative powers.
