Paul Simon, Sting rock Madison Square Garden
NEW YORK (AP) — From the time the two musical icons stepped on the Madison Square Garden stage, it was clear from their very first glance that Paul Simon and Sting shared mutual affection for each other.
After opening with Sting’s “Brand New Day” Tuesday night, followed by Simon’s “The Boy in the Bubble,” the two performers rotated on and off stage for the next two-and-a-half hours.
By the end of the night, the two legendary performers had covered a poignant mix of their hits and obscurities and brought life to each other’s music. The show’s final songs were duets of “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” ″Every Breath You Take,” and “Late in the Evening.”
