10 observations about the Sting / Paul Simon concert:
1. Really really good. People left with a smile and a sense of awe.
2. People were mostly 35-60.
3. Good chemistry between the two, though initially Paul looked at Sting often while Sting was a bit more aloof.
4. The two bands were amazing, and meshed well together.
5. Sound was, well, not great.
6. Sting's voice (and body) are as when he was 30. Paul's voice (and body, I wouldn't know) less, but still very good (well, the voice anyway).
7. Sting performed at a consistent top level. Paul was more variable. His lows were less compelling, but his highs (Graceland, Diamonds) were the high points of the 2.5 hour concert. He connected with the crowd at a deeper emotional level.
8. Their joint Bridge over Troubled Water, with Sting starting and ending solo, was emotionally the most poignant moment.
9. Ending with an encore of The Everly Brothers with just their acoustic guitars and no band was a nice touch.
10. Did I say it was really, really good?
