THERE was less screaming than the scenes witnessed at Take That at the weekend.
But the crowd were no less enthusiastic when Paul Simon (above) took to the stage for a sellout gig at Dublin's Vicar Street last night.
A number of RTE stars -- including Joe Duffy, Dave Fanning and newsreader Bryan Dobson -- arrived at the venue during a downpour.
But the mood of the crowd was lifted when the legendary performer began playing songs from his new album, 'So Beautiful or So What'.
The American singer-songwriter played the warm-up gig ahead of a concert at the Marquee in Cork tonight. It will be his first time in Cork since playing a sold-out gig there in 2008. Tickets for tonight are still available.
