PAUL SIMON returns to Philadelphia – Richards & Carter on the Town & Jane Golden Breaks her painting arm.
Paul Simon performed at the Academy Ball last January, and even did a duet with the great American Soprano Renee Fleming. He’s returning to Philly on June 4th & 5th, this time at the Merriam Theater. Philly is his last stop before his “So Beautiful or So What,” tour heads overseas.He hopes you’ll come out and see him. Tickets on sale soon as the ink just dried on the contract yesterday.
Flyers teammates Mike Richards and Jeff Carter were at Union Trust last night. Carter was in a brace as it was just reported yesterday that he is on the injured list for a few games. You’ll recall Mike appeared in a photo/sponsor page in the Academy Ball with me that honored the late Linda Creed and my sister Judy Wilkins which promoted their cancer charities. Which reminds me…
I was at Sigma Sound, where the above two photos were taken, and where Charles Dutton’s movie “Must Be The Music” was filming for the past two weeks. Next week members of the Stylistics will be in a few of the scenes. The above gold record is for one of the Stylistics biggest hits “Betcha By Golly Wow” which was written by Linda Creed. Happy Earth Day. At about 10AM the Earth Day Party to the Parks will go live on PhillyChitChat. Mural Arts director Jane Golden was scheduled to speak at the event, but she broke her arm earlier in the day and sent Amy Johnston in her place. We wish Jane Golden a speedy recovery. She’s a terrific lady.
