1968: Eugene McCarthy Benefit Shows

Posted: September 7, 2016 in Uncategorized

Paul Simon & Art Garfunkel joined the 1968 campaign of governor Eugene McCarthy, who was running for president that year.

As far as I know the following three dates, were the shows they did for that campaign:

1968-04-18 Palestra, University of Penssylvania (Eugene McCarthy Benefit)
1968-05-02 Indianapolis, USA, Coliseum (Eugene McCarthy Benefit)
1968-05-07 Indiana (Eugene McCarthy Benefit)

There might have been more. Simon & Garfunkel performed in various cities around the mentioned dates above as well. But to my knowledge so far, these were not connected to the McCarthy campaign.

“Paul Simon going strong at 74” the caption reads. There was some interpretation, this summer,  about Simon going to retire. But as the reporter writes the audience did not notice this.



On August 19, 1968, Simon & Garfunkel perfromed at the Saratoga Springs Performing Arts Center, setting a new record:
