NEW YORK (AP) - Paul Simon performed a rousing set and accepted an award from New York University in his first public appearance since he and his wife were arrested on disorderly conduct charges.

The 72-year-old performed more than a dozen songs Monday at the Beacon Theatre in New York, where he was honored at the 2014 NYU Steinhardt Vision Award Gala. He played guitar and sang hits such as "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover" and "Late In the Evening."

Simon and 48-year-old Edie Brickell became physical with each other during an argument inside a cottage on their New Canaan, Connecticut, property last week.

Brickell didn't attend the event, which raised $1.1 million. Simon joked: "After my fee of a million is deducted, that's $100,000."

Simon taught a songwriting course at NYU in the 1970s.
