    The Boxer is ready to hang up his gloves: Paul Simon has announced “Homeward Bound – The Farewell Tour.” Kicking off in May, the 30-date outing encompasses shows in North America, Europe, and the UK, culminating with a massive concert at London’s Hyde Park featuring James Taylor and Bonnie Raitt in support.

    In a statement, Simon confirmed his impending retirement from the road. He explained: “I’ve often wondered what it would feel like to reach the point where I’d consider bringing my performing career to a natural end. Now I know: it feels a little unsettling, a touch exhilarating and something of a relief. I love making music, my voice is still strong, and my band is a tight, extraordinary group of gifted musicians. I think about music constantly. I am very grateful for a fulfilling career and, of course, most of all to the audiences who heard something in my music that touched their hearts.”

    Tickets go on sale beginning Friday, February 9th. You can also grab them here.
