Your Guide to Tonight's Paul Simon Show

Paul Simon's So Beautiful or So What tour makes a stop tonight at the Fabulous Fox Theatre -- check back tomorrow morning for a full review and setlist from the show.

Paul Simon is among the best songwriters folk music has ever had, and at his worst you could still never accuse him of complacency. After a Brian Eno-assisted divergence on Surprise, he returned this year with So Beautiful Or So What. It employs the lessons learned from forty years of experimentation, but more than that it finds Simon's conversational melodies and subject matter effortless and effective in a way that neither has been in years.

This tour is now on its second leg -- the first skipped St. Louis. Recent setlists have drawn deeply from his entire catalogue but leaned heaviest on the new album and Graceland.
