Return to Joe’s Pub NYC 2015

In News, Tour Diary by Kathy2 Comments

A Simon show at Joe’s Pub in NYC is always special! Great crowds, amazing venue, wonderful people. Simon returned to Joe’s on May 27th in a busy few days of NYC Who activity. The night before had been a killer show at Barclays in Brooklyn. Fans were ready for a great solo show and man did they get one! A blistering set from Simon in a place that now seems much like home  (as evidenced in various videos up on YouTube!)

Set list included some rare gems like “Scaffolding” and a blistering, albeit shortened “When She Sleeps”. And as always, Simon stuck around afterwards to meet and sign CDs for fans.

Set list:  Mother, Leaving This Town, About Love, Scaffolding, The Way It Is, She Asked Me, Bare Assets, When She Sleeps (bit),  Stay, All So Real, Bed of Roses, Time Bomb, Denial, Heal, Looking Out Looking In, I’m The Answer, Forever And A Day, Ecstasy Heaven



  1. we’ve seen every nyc show of yours since “sweet sound” was released, simon and oh my, how incredible to finally hear “on the scaffolding” again (at joe’s pub on 5/27/15). thank you!

    we both bought “denial” that night (which you graciously signed while chatting with us & posing for a quick photo). we listened to nothing else in our cars all week and both agreed that we couldn’t stop replaying “bare essence”. powerful, beautiful song (live or on disk).

    please, please schedule a solo night when the who returns to the area in october 2015. can’t wait for both!
