Art Garfunkel has announced his full spring and summer itinerary, which now will take in four UK stops. Garfunkel kicks off his North American shows on May 17th in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania at the Sands Bethlehem Event Center and winds things down Stateside on July 25th in Atlantic City, New Jersey at the Borgata Hotel, Casino & Spa / Music Box.
After suffering for a good three years of vocal paralysis, in which time Garfunkel had to all but relearn how too sing, he explained to The New Haven Register that he’s over the moon at being in full voice at last, saying, "I feel like (I’m) 26. I worked to get the voice back. . . I have been singing since I was five; it’s my best friend. I’m married to singing and its problems. The voice left me and now that it's back, I am so grateful."
Garfunkel revealed to us the panic he felt as his life and livelihood slowly slipped away with the loss of his voice in 2010: "And it scary to be inept at something you were not only okay about, but a perfectionist about. You feel you’re 14-years-old, and you’re totally scared. Show business is vulnerability, you invite a lot of people and you say: ‘Let em show you what I can do.’ And then if you can’t do it, it’s a funny place to be, but you’ve got to be in that place on the way back."
