Paul Simon Extends 2011 U.S. Tour

By on March 31, 2011 in

Legendary singer-songwriter Paul Simon has added concert dates to his already extensive North American spring tour. The string of shows will begin at the WaMu Theater in Seattle, WA Friday, April 15th and close at the House of Blues in Boston, MA Thursday, June 2nd. The House of Blues show will take place one day prior to his performance at Boston’s Citi Performing Arts Center – Wang Theatre. Additional cities to host Simon are Los Angeles, Oakland, Minneapolis, Toronto, New York City, Chicago, Nashville, Atlanta, Washington DC and Atlantic City.

Simon scheduled a summer tour in 2010 with longtime music partner Art Garfunkel before he was eventually hindered by vocal paralysis, leading to the postponement and cancellation of the remaining concerts.  “He called me a few weeks ago and said, ‘When you’re ready, I’m very happy to bring the guitar around the house and let’s try ‘The Boxer,’ let’s warm up, let’s see where we’re at,'” said Garfunkel. “So he’s definitely rooting seriously for me.”

The 69-year old Simon is preparing to release his 12th studio album So Beautiful or So What, a project he claims to be “the best work I’ve done in 20 years.” The album is set to release Tuesday, April 12th.
