Paul Simon Announces His Farewell Tour’s Final Leg

Paul Simon has confirmed the dates for the final leg of his Homeward Bound – The Farewell Tour which kicks off in Vancouver on May 16, 2018. The new dates include stops in New Orleans, Tampa, and Atlanta. Simon will finish up his final tour by performing four shows in places near and dear to his heart. The last leg of the tour will wind down with two concerts at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey followed by two performances at Madison Square Garden. Simon’s last concert will take place in New York City on September 22nd.

“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,” stated Paul Simon. “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 will go on sale for the final leg of the Homeward Bound – The Farewell Tour on Friday, March 16 at 9am ET. For more details on purchasing tickets, visit

Simon has been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame. He’s had 29 Top 40 singles over his lengthy career and in 2006 he made Time Magazine’s “100 People Who Shape Our World” list.
