Simon and Garfunkel Reunite at Beacon Theatre Reopening

Paul Simon brought Art Garfunkel out for the encore of the renovated Beacon Theatre reopening show on February 13, 2009 for a three song Simon and Garfunkel Reunion, for one of only a few times together in the last four years. They sang "The Sounds Of Silence", "The Boxer", and "Old Friends" to a surprised and ecstatic crowd of fans including such celebrities as Paul McCartney, Jon Bon Jovi, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Rosie O'Donnell, and The Jonas Brothers. This was a special moment that was shared by a lucky (and rich) group of people on Friday The 13th, and will probably start new talk of a Simon and Garfunkel reunion tour or at least a few shows for the masses to see (and hear). Hopefully that will happen! It certainly would be a wonderful thing to see. We can only keep our collective fingers crossed on this one and hope it happens. Please Guys, how about Central Park again? What a Scene that would be!


The Dead Add Three Shows To Spring Tour

The Dead added on three shows to their upcoming Spring Tour Monday, May 4, 2009, All State Arena in Chicago, IL, Thursday, May 14, 2009, Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mt. View, CA, and Sunday, May 16, 2009, The Gorge in Quincy, WA. The Gorge show will be with special guests The Allman Brothers Band and The Doobie Brothers. Pretty interesting. I wish I could go to that, but I'll just be doing the New York area shows: MSG, Nassau Coliseum, East Rutherford.

I mail ordered for those venues and shortly after received an email from The Dead (GDTSTOO) saying that they could only fill one third of the Madison Square Garden requests. I got very edgy about getting shut out of possibly the last time the remaining members of the Grateful Dead would play MSG, so when tickets went on sale through Ticketscum(master) I went on their website and ordered a ticket. The only catch was that I THOUGHT I bought the ticket from TM, but in actuallity I was seamlessly taken to another website, I think owned by TMaster, and bought a previously purchased ticket for a higher price ($200.00) from someone reselling it. In other words I bought a scalped ticket from Ticketmaster! Unbeknownst to me. They even charged me $12.95 for shipping which must have been a prechecked box on the form I rushed through online because if you don't hurry up you lose those tickets in the que. When I got a FedEx notice a few days later I figured out that I paid extra for shipping. When I picked it up guess what was inside? A photocopy of a ticket to the show and a notice to the affect of "Do Not photocopy this ticket and resell. Once this ticket is scanned at the venue this barcode can not be rescanned for admittance". What's with that? I mean why not tell people that they're buying a ticket higher than face value? Why not also send the actual ticket rather than a photocopy? Who would I contact to find out why this happened to me? Big Brother? I heard about the whole Bruce Springsteen thing too. I think bands should make sure their ticket sales are not misshandled like that. If I could pay $200.00 for a ticket why shouldn't that money go to the band, not to an individual reselling it and Live Nation and Ticketscum, who by the way are looking to merge. It's like the greedy merging with the more greedy!

So if I get my MSG ticket for The Dead maybe someone wants to rebuy this ticket from me. Maybe I'll open it up to bid right here. Check back to see what happens if you want a ticket for this show. Hey, ya never know.
