A Review by a Fan who was there
2 December 2003 | by (Northwest, USA) – See all my reviews

I remember this concert well...but as they say of the '60s, if your can remember it you weren't there. I was a teen back then (September 1981) and like most of the hundreds of thousands of others there I was smoking myself a "J". Me and a friend got a good place as everyone packed in hours before the show. Then I had to take a leak. Unfortunately it took an hour of stepping over a mass of stoned people to find somewhere to go, and as the concert started I gradually found my way back.

Mrs. Robinson starts it off. Then Homeward Bound, America, Me and Julio, Scarborough Fair, April Come She Will, Still Crazy, Late in the Evening, and it ends with Old Friends, Bookends, Sounds of Silence, and everything in between. This was a great concert and a respite for me from the New Jersey suburbs. Nothing much to do there except count the cars on the NJ Turnpike.

I went to Paul Simon's 1991 concert there too.
