Simon and Garfunkel Tribute in Tel Aviv

A Simon and Garfunkel tribute concert is to be performed in Tel Aviv by two Israeli musicians.

This is really barely newsworthy, but kind of cool for me on a personal level given that I grew up listening to Simon and Garfunkel and was lucky enough to see them in concert twice.

Ooo, I'm jealous! S&G were my favs when I was a teenager.

I never got to see them in concert, only Paul Simon solo. The songs were great, of course, but there was no enthusiasm in between songs. It was almost like he was pissed off to be there and was just going through the motions.

I did buy the double album of their Central Park "reunion concert" though.

CBA,
I grew up on their music but have more than once felt the same way whne watching SImon in concert or listening to a live album that he sometimes lacked charisma or enthusiasm. On the other hand, when I saw him with Garfunkel or even him alone at some of his later shows, he was very "into it."
I suppose like all of us performers have their moods and you may have seen him on a bad day, which is too bad.
His touring day aren't over though, I'm sure you'll have other chances, you may need to travel though!
