  1. My wife bought front row center seats at the Fox to see Paul Simon a “few” years ago for my Birthday. It was one of the best concerts and Birthday presents ever. We also saw him right after the release of Graceland but alas was in the Omni; terrible seats but great music.

  2. One question that I would like answered is: Why did Mr. Simon give up a promising career in the NBA just to pursue some silly artistic endeavour that may or may not have paid off? Was it really worth it?
