Paul Simon: The Concert in Hyde Park

See Full Schedule

Paul Simon and his musicians headlined the closing night of the Hard Rock Calling Festival in London’s Hyde Park. Simon’s epic career-spanning set list included Simon & Garfunkel classics, solo favorites and much more. Both immediate and retrospective, the three-hour set took a rapt audience through his extensive repertoire, from “The Sound of Silence” and “The Boxer” to “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover” and “Late in the Evening.” The performance also featured vibrant renditions of “You Can Call Me Al” and “The Boy in the Bubble” in honor of the 25th anniversary of his landmark Grammy-winning album Graceland.

Ten years after playing a free concert in New York's Central Park with Art Garfunkel, Paul Simon returned, backed by the New York session musicians and the native musicians from South Africa and Brazil who had enlivened his solo work.
