NEW YORK (AP) — Paul Simon will reopen Manhattan’s historic Beacon Theatre with two concerts next month.
The event follows a 7-month, $15 million restoration.
The 2,800-seat, landmark theater was built in 1928 in the art deco style. Then Warner Brothers purchased the venue and gave it Moroccan and Greek influences. MSG Entertainment acquired it in November 2006.
Simon first performed at the Beacon in 1990 alongside Paul McCartney and returned for a three-night run in December 2000. He also appeared there in 2003 for Willie Nelson’s nationally televised 70th birthday celebration.
Tickets go on sale Jan. 25 for the Feb. 13-14 concerts.
