Paul Simon Announces Final Leg Of Farewell Tour

Music News

Paul Simon has announced the final leg of his “Homeward Bound – The Farewell Tour,” which will wrap with four New York-area hometown gigs. Simon’s 11-date September run includes a September 15th show in his birth city of Newark, New Jersey at the Prudential Center, followed by two nights at Manhattan’s Madison Square Garden on September 20th and 21st. The venue for a third New York City show on September 22nd is still TBA — with more than a few people hoping that it will turn out to be Simon’s third and final concert in Central Park.

Paul Simon’s latest album, 2016’s Stranger To Stranger, not only marked his best chart debut, entering the Billboard charts at Number Three, but it stands as his highest charting album in 30 years. The last time Simon charted this high was in 1986 for the Grammy-winning Graceland collection. Simon was asked if writing new material comes as naturally as it ever had: “I find it a little bit harder. I find it harder to get started and then the process moves into familiar territory. And then I puzzle out what I’m going to say musically, rhythmically, lyrically — then it proceeds about the same pace as usual.”
