This past weekend was the Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival at San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. Closing out Sunday night’s performance was the legendary Paul Simon, who turned in a very special headlining set as he briefly ended his retirement from public performing for this one-off legacy set at the festival.

Toward the very end, he was joined by a special guest: Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead. Before their first-ever public duet, Simon told stories of Haight/Ashbury and his story of meeting Weir and the Dead back in the late 1960s, before the two (and Simon’s band) launched into the Simon & Garfunkel classic “The Boxer.”

That’s a pretty perfect way to close out another installment of the festival, which has always featured some amazing legacy acts, from Paul McCartney to Stevie Wonder, Janet Jackson to the late Tom Petty and more.

Here’s Simon’s full set list from the night;
