"Thursday MSGE will be announcing the legendary artist that has been confirmed to reopen the Beacon Theatre in the coming weeks. The beloved New York landmark recently underwent a 7-month restoration to return the venue to its original grandeur, and one of the most prolific musicians of our day will take the stage of the magnificently refurbished theatre for an unforgettable night of music to celebrate this historic event."Daft Punk? Sorry, I couldn't resist. I wonder who it will be (it's not the person in that picture) (I don't think). Leonard is playing on the 19th. Before him so far is just a "70's Soul Jam Valentine's Concert".
UPDATE: It's Paul Simon.
