Paul Simon @ Wembley

I went to see Paul Simon in concert at Wembley Arena last night. Had a good time. It wasn't quite what I had expected. For starters there wasn't the large backing vocal section that I was hoping for and Wembley Arena isn't the best venue from an acoustic perspective.

It wasn't until the third song that the sound engineers got the levels correct and even then it was a little dodgy. Paul played a lot of his more popular songs and the performace was great. Despite being one of the shortest people you'll ever see on stage he has a great stage presence. The band was quite good and the delivery of the songs was great, but te atmosphere was lacking. Wembley Area is probably too large for this kind of music.
