Simon & Garfunkel KO Upcoming Tour
The summer tour of Simon & Garfunkel, which originally had been scheduled for April and then moved to July because of the vocal troubles of Art Garfunkel, now has been postponed for an indefinite period of time.
A statement was posted on Simon & Garfunkel’s website to announce the cancellation of their “Old Friends Tour.” The continued vocal paresis of Art Garfunkel was the reason given for the cancellation of the tour. A full recovery for Garfunkel is expected.
Due to the fact that the singer still hasn’t healed satisfactorily, the duo thought the best thing to do was postpone their scheduled 15 city outing.
Garfunkel stated, I feel bad disrupting the plans of so many. Although, I am continuing to heal, I still am not able to take my “A game” with me out on tour. I won’t perform with anything less than that.
The statement advised that ticket holders can received refunds at the point of their purchase.
Originally, Simon & Garfunkel split in 1970. However on numerous occasions over the years, they have reunited. Last fall, they performed at the Rock & Hall of Fame’s 25th anniversary concert at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
