In April 1995, commuters walking through Grand Central were pleasantly surprised to stumble upon Simon and her band performing a full, unannounced concert in the middle of the main terminal. The concert—Simon’s first in fourteen years—was filmed and aired on the Lifetime network for a television special which was released on VHS later that year.
Simon was recently inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, a special evening which featured performances by Olivia Rodrigo and Sara Bareilles.
Her exhibition is officially open now at the historic Cleveland museum, including her original outfit and some original prints from the famous Norman Seeff photo shoot for the cover of Playing Possum, handwritten lyrics from an early draft of “You’re So Vain,” and her custom-made Taylor guitar with beautiful personalized inlay work. Exclusive merchandise is available including a limited edition 100% silk scarf personally designed by Carly via her website HERE and exclusive co-branded merch in collaboration with the Rock Hall with proceeds going to Rock Hall’s educational programs website HERE.

Simon has received an Academy Award, Golden Globe Award, been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, received a Berklee College of Music Honorary Doctor of Music Degree and been nominated for a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
