Paul Simon releasing live CD/DVD of his 2011 Webster Hall show (video premiere)

Back in 2011, Paul Simon played a small (for him) club date in NYC, a BrooklynVegan-presented Webster Hall show, and that show is now being turned into a live album/film called Paul Simon Live in New York City which will be out on 2-CD / 1-DVD on September 18. That show was part of Paul’s tour of his 2011 LP, So Beautiful or So What, and included a number of tracks off of that album, in addition to many of his classics like “Mother and Child Reunion,” “The Sound of Silence,” “The Only Living Boy in New York,” and others.

Based on the tracklist, which you can check out below, it won’t be including the part of the encore when David Byrne came out to perform “You Can Call Me Al” and the Talking Heads’ “Road to Nowhere” with Paul, or Paul’s cover of “Here Comes the Sun,” but the majority of the show was captured and will be available. To get a glimpse of what you can expect, check out a video of Paul and his band playing “Dazzling Blue” at that show, along with the film trailer below.

Those videos, the cover art, and tracklist are below.
