Paul Simon to Perform at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace Oct. 24

September 22, 2011 by  

Legendary artist Paul Simon has announced that he will return to the road this fall. The dates will include a very special Las Vegas performance at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on Monday, October 24 at 7:30 PM.

The set list will draw from Simon’s iconic career, including several songs that haven’t been performed live in many years. Also included will be tracks from So Beautiful or So What, his first new record in five years released by Hear Music/Concord Music Group in April to wide spread critical acclaim. Fans can enjoy all of this up close in The Colosseum’s comfortably intimate setting.

Simon earned rave reviews on the spring leg of his US tour. The Hollywood Reporter said he delivered, “an alternately beautiful and boisterous show… It was raucous and rolling all night.” The Los Angeles Times praised his, “rich, perfectly programmed concert,” noting that, “He received countless ovations,” from the sold-out crowd. The Chicago Tribune summed up the tour’s powerful intimacy, saying, “Paul Simon has played stadiums and festivals. He’s done Central Park. So it was a treat to see one of the most venerated songwriters of the last half-century turn the sold-out Vic Theatre into his living room.”

Joining Paul once again on the road is a stellar band of musicians including Cameroonian guitarist Vincent Nguini, drummer Jim Oblon, pianist Mick Rossi, saxophonist/keyboardist Andrew Snitzer, bassist Bakithi Kumalo, guitarist Mark Stewart, master percussionist Jamey Haddad and multi-instrumentalist Tony Cedras.

Produced by Phil Ramone and Paul Simon, with liner notes written by Elvis Costello, So Beautiful or So What is one of the most well reviewed albums of the year. Rolling Stone magazine declared it, “His best since Graceland,” and National Public Radio affirmed, “…his new music balances great poetry and pop. Paul Simon is a national treasure.” Filter Magazine called the collection, “…a new masterpiece from the Picasso of music.”

Tickets for Paul Simon’s performance at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace will go on sale Friday, September 23 at 10 AM. They may be purchased in person at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace box office, online at or by calling 800-745-3000. Ticket prices are $145, $120, $85 and $59.50 (plus applicable taxes and fees).
