Up Topic General / Letters and Opinions / Paul Simon farewell tour
- - By Tommeke Date 2018-02-08 4:48 AM
Paul Simon is coming to Belgium in July for his farewell tour.
I was wondering if someone saw him live lately and if it's still worth going (me liking his music without being a die hard fan), as in, is his voice and all still good at 76?

I wonder if he’s still crazy after all these years.

I'm not aware of too many things, I know what I know, if you know what I mean :wtf:

You could likely save a ton of cash by just waiting for the Art Garfunkel farewell tour.

I don't think I'll go. it's over 100$ and just watched some recent footage which didn't really overwhelm me.

Everything looks worse in black and white

Should I stay or should I go, that's pretty binary.

The Clash would be more fun

Madness came last year (I don't know how famous they are in North-America) but The Clash is a done deal :sad:

They had a hit or two from what I remember..."Our House" is the only song I can think of.

they were pretty huge in the UK and Europe. Ska classics.

One step beyond is a song they play at Chelsea soccer games.
It must be love

I would go.

I've been listening to Hyde Park 2017 which sounds great, I don't know if he'll be with this many people on stage in Antwerp.
I still have some time to decide.

If you are a big fan, I'd encourage you to go. I totally envy that $100 price tag, I will not tell you what I pay to see my favorite aging bands, Fleetwood Mac and the Eagles!

This is once in a lifetime stuff, so just decide whatever is best for you.
From what I've seen of the older rockers, they are better than ever... my opinion of course. :wink:

Graceland is still one of my favorites :cool:

Me too. On my top 10 album list for sure.

Memphis, Tennessee?

I saw him last year in Tahoe - which may have been part of his farewell tour too.   It was a pretty decent show.  I'm not a huge fan but enjoyed the show.   Given the chance to see Paul Simon or Pink, I'd choose the former.
Parent - - By Tommeke Date 2018-02-09 11:33 AM Edited 2018-02-09 11:37 AM
Pink, no way :laugh:

One of the reasons I would want to see Paul Simon is because he's a legend, has great songs that are just part of history.
I just don't know how he's holding up in a full show, and it's not the cheapest show to go to.

There are a couple of bands I've seen the past couple of years that I wouldn't say I'm huge fans of but that I wanted to see nevertheless: Bruce Springsteen (actually a fan), Rolling Stones, KISS, ...
There are a couple that I passed on and that I won't have the chance to see again: Leonard Cohen, Prince, ...

Leonard Cohen :cry:RIP

New York, to that tall skyline I come, flyin' in from London to your door
New York, lookin' down on Central Park
Where they say you should not wander after dark
New York, like a scene from all those movies
But you're real enough to me, but there's a heart
A heart that lives in New York
A heart in New York, a rose on the street
I write my song to that city heartbeat
A heart in New York, love in her eye, an open door and a friend for the night
New York, you got money on your mind
And my words won't make a dime's worth a difference, so here's to you New York
