5/26 UPDATE: Congratulations to our winner James Nicholson, and a big THANK YOU to everyone who entered!

A dream of mine came true when I got the opportunity to see Paul Simon perform at The Forum back in 2014. He was co-headlining a tour with Sting, and the two split the spotlight for the night, sharing the stage for an enthusiastic crowd that had spent the last few decades falling in love the music of the two living legends.

While that night goes down as one of the greatest musical experiences of my life, my love for Paul Simon far outweighs my appreciation for Sting, so a little part of me has been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to catch the former on his own headlining tour. Now it looks like I won’t have to wait much longer because my favorite singer-songwriter will be bringing his acclaimed live show to The Hollywood Bowl on June 1st!

Simon’s thirteenth studio album and first since 2011, Stranger to Stranger, is scheduled for release on April 29th, so fans will likely get to hear a fair share of those tracks performed live, as well as so many favorites from his catalog (I’ll be most looking forward to “Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard,” “The Boxer,” pretty much anything from Graceland…).

Opening the show will be M. Ward (Zooey Deschanel’s other half in She & Him), a very talented songwriter himself, so from top to bottom, this show at The Bowl will be one for the ages…which is why I’m very excited to announce we have a free pair of tickets for one lucky reader!
