Class act. That's basically sums up Paul Simon these days. Hitting the road this spring behind the strong new album, So Beautiful, So What, he mixes up great newer tunes with classics from all throughout his storied career. The two Chicago shows in May were tough tickets, especially the gig at the intimate Vic Theatre. Luckily, some dedicated tapers were on hand to capture what went down and The Barn is happy to share this incredible night of music with you. This should keep us sated until he hopefully swings through here again.
