Washington, Feb 15 (ANI): Audience, who went to watch Paul Simon perform on New York stage, were in for a double surprise when the singer was reunited on stage by his former Tom and Jerry mate Art Garfunkel.

Simon was performing at the reopening of the legendary Beacon Theater on the Upper West Side, reports Fox News.

And those who came to listen to him included big names like Paul McCartney (and Nancy Shevell), Jon Bon Jovi with wife Dorothea, Harvey Weinstein and Georgina Chapman, Rosie ODonnell and Kelli Carpenter, Whoopi Goldberg, James Gandolfini, musician Robert Randolph.

Although the night was billed just as a Paul Simon show, he also brought members of the cast of his late lamented Broadway show, The Capeman, to perform some numbers.

And after entertaining listeners with some obscure but beautiful gems like Fathers and Daughters, Train in the Distance, and Youre the One, Garfunkel took the stage to a thunderous ovation.

People along with Paul McCartney were screaming when he joined his former band mate Simon on stage.

Garfunkel was flown up on a private plane from the middle of a Florida tour.

Then they did gorgeous versions of The Sound of Silence, The Boxer, and Old Friends/Bookends.

And the most striking part of the evening was how the duo fell into their old positions, side by side. (ANI)
