Duo sings three songs at Beacon Theatre
The famed duo of Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel reunited Friday night (13 February) at New York City's Beacon Theatre, the first concert at the venue after a seven-month, $16 million renovation.
The response from the crowd, which included everyone from Paul McCartney to Jon Bon Jovi to the Jonas Brothers, was deafening.
Simon & Garfunkel performed The Sound Of Silence (see video below), The Boxer and Old Friends, their legendary harmonies still gloriously intact. It was their third appearance together since a 2004 reunion tour.
"The fact that you still care is tremendous," Garfunkel said during the standing ovation that followed The Sound Of Silence.
