Following a seven-month renovation, New York City's renowned Beacon Theater celebrated its grand re-opening this past Thursday night in star-studded fashion. Guests including Paul McCartney, Jon Bon Jovi, and NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg turned out to watch Paul Simon play the inaugural gig, but were then treated to a surprise reunion with Art Garfunkel.
Simon and Garfunkel performed "The Sound of Silence," "The Boxer," and "Old Friends," marking just their third appearance together since concluding a 2004 reunion tour. Garfunkel flew in from Key Largo, Florida, where he had played the night before, for this memorable event.
