GGR - I used a newspaper promo code thingy - so what I paid for 2 tickets, a person in my office paid for one. I think it was fate really, because I had just that amount and a little bit more on my CC....
I love Simon and Garfunkel....They were the first concert I ever went to back in 1969 !!! I was the bratty little sister and bugged them to go. It was my oldest brother's first date with his girlfriend (who later became his wife) Such good memories.... My brothers surprised me with the ticket and I was so excited. I am so jealous. Wonder if they will come to the west coast ?
I will never forget a very small snip on SNL back in the day. It was right around Christmastime, and they must've had, what, an extra 2 mins in the show. And so they sent a film crew down to Grand Central Station (or Penn station, or whatever) and filmed in slo-mo people greeeting friends/family off the trains, as they arrived for the holidays. And the overlay was Simon/Garfunkle w/"Homeward Bound."
It was one of the most singularly moving things I have ever seen. All the more remarkable from the take-no-prisoners comedy show that SNL was at the time.
