Paul Simon announces farewell tour

Posted: Updated:

Songwriting legend, Paul Simon just announced his farewell tour -- Homeward Bound. Simon and his band will play shows across North America and Europe beginning in Vancouver, Canada on May 16. Tickets for the tour go on sale February 9.

Simon said his farewell tour is bittersweet.

“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.”

Paul Simon has been performing since the early 1960s and has released 13 studio albums, not including the five albums as part of Simon & Garfunkel. He had a total of 29 singles break the top 40, and he's won 16 Grammys. 

Here's the full tour schedule:
