Paul Simon – The Boxer (with Bob Weir) – Outside Lands 2019, San Francisco

Paul Simon – The Boxer (with Bob Weir) – San Francisco, Live, Outside Lands 2019, Sun. 8-11-19, Golden Gate Park, 1st row. Paul: We’ve been friends ever since (1967). But actually, this is our first duet!

Other Tidbits:

Paul Simon retired from touring last year, but he remained open to one-off performances to benefit causes that mean a lot to him. For OSL, Paul chose the San Francisco Parks Alliance and Friends of the Urban Forest. Paul also performed A Very Special Outside Lands Pop-Up Show 2 nights earlier at the Fox Theater in Oakland. The last time he performed in the SF Bay Area was last year for the Homeward Bound – The Farewell Tour at Oracle Arena. Everybody was excited to see him (again!).

Simon: Well I have an old friend who is coming out to join me tonight… I met him in 1967… I was coming up to the Haight-Ashbury to invite The Grateful Dead to join the Monterey Pop Festival. I knocked on the door of their house, and Bob Weir opened the door… and we’ve been friends ever since! But actually, this is our first duet!
