Paul Simon to be in Vegas for one on sale soon!

 Legendary artist
Paul Simon has announced that he will return to the road this fall.  The dates will include a very special
Las Vegas performance at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on Monday, October 24 at 7:30 PM.

The set list will
draw from Simon’s iconic career, including several songs that haven’t been
performed live in many years. Also included will be tracks from So Beautiful or
So What, his first new record in five years released by Hear Music/Concord
Music Group in April to wide spread critical acclaim.  Fans can enjoy all of this up close in The
Colosseum’s comfortably intimate setting.

Simon earned rave
reviews on the spring leg of his
US tour.  The
Hollywood Reporter said he delivered, “an alternately beautiful and boisterous
show…  It was raucous and rolling all
night.”  The Los Angeles Times praised
his, “rich, perfectly programmed concert,” noting that, “He received countless
ovations,” from the sold-out crowd.  The
Chicago Tribune summed up the tour’s powerful intimacy, saying, “Paul Simon has
played stadiums and festivals. He's done
Central Park. So it was a treat to see one of the most venerated
songwriters of the last half-century turn the sold-out
Vic Theatre into his living room.”  


Joining Paul once
again on the road is a stellar band of musicians including Cameroonian
guitarist Vincent Nguini, drummer Jim Oblon, pianist Mick Rossi,
saxophonist/keyboardist Andrew Snitzer, bassist Bakithi Kumalo, guitarist Mark
Stewart, master percussionist Jamey Haddad and multi-instrumentalist Tony

Produced by Phil
Ramone and Paul Simon, with liner notes written by Elvis Costello, So Beautiful
or So What is one of the most well reviewed albums of the year.  Rolling Stone magazine declared it, “Hisbest
Graceland,” and National Public Radio affirmed, “…his new music
balances great poetry and pop. Paul Simon is a national treasure.”  Filter Magazine called the collection, “…a
new masterpiece from the Picasso of music.”

Simon’s performance at The Colosseum at
Caesars Palace will go on sale Friday, September 23 at 10 AM.  They may be
