He’ll follow that with two-night stands in Oakland and Los Angeles before veering east for shows in Denver, Chicago, Toronto and Boston, and closing out the leg with two nights at the Beacon Theatre in New York City.

Simon’s North American dates come on the heels of a monthlong European tour, which ends November 1.

The legendary singer/songwriter is tentatively scheduled to release You’re The One on Warner Bros. Records September 26. It’s his first studio album since 1990’s Rhythm Of The Saints.

Last year, Simon shared billing with fellow icon Bob Dylan on a lengthy tour. Prior to that, his last major stint was a 21-night stand at the Theatre at Madison Square Garden in 1993. Over the years, Simon has turned in one-offs – either solo or with former musical partner Art Garfunkle – for reunion shows and benefits.

Simon & Garfunkle split up two years after the release of their most successful album, Bridge Over Troubled Water, in 1970. Simon launched a solo career that resulted in a string of hits in the 1970s.

He slowed down the pace (and had few hits) in the early 1980s but rebounded with Graceland in 1987.

He turned from pop music to theatre in 1997 with “Capeman,” a disastrous stage production that closed down after three weeks on Broadway.
