Paul Simon @ BAM

I just got an e-mail from The Public Theater about upcoming performances at BAM. One of my all-time favorite artists, Paul Simon, will be performing at the Brooklyn Academy of Music this April.
Latin beats and 50s doo-wop fill New York City's nights with Songs from The Capeman. In Under African Skies, Simon rekindles a love affair with the sounds of South Africa and Brazil which began with his masterpieces Graceland and The Rhythm of the Saints. Finally, Simon revisits the quiet railway stations, urban rhythms, and immigrant dreams of his greatest American Tunes.

Beware! I was at the Songs from the Capeman show last night and Paul Simon sang only 1 or 2 songs near the end of the second half, with the rest of the show being the Harlem Orchestra and everyone else advertised to perform. Apparently these shows are just tributes to Paul Simon's music and while he will play a song or two every night, that is it, these are not Paul Simon concerts with lots of special guests, as most likely EVERYONE figured and was hoping for...so just beware when deciding how much you want to spend to see him...cuz you'll barely see Paul Simon at these shows, unfortunately.
