CHICAGO (CBS) – Good old Rhymin’ Simon will be playing a concert Tuesday night at the Chicago Theatre.

As of 1:15 p.m. Tuesday, tickets were still available for the 7:30 p.m. show at the theater, at 175 N. State St. They range in price from $48.50 to $128.50.

At the concert, Simon will play several songs from throughout his career, including several from his new album released last month, “So Beautiful or So What.” The album was recently declared “his best since Graceland,” by Rolling Stone magazine.
