Simon & Garfunkel Tour Pushed Back To July

Citing a “vocal strain,” the Simon & Garfunkel tour originally scheduled to begin April 29 in Vancouver, British Columbia, has been rescheduled, placing the outing smack dab in the middle of summer.

Rumors of Art Garfunkel experiencing a vocal problem emerged after the duo’s performance at the April 24, and were further fueled when Live Nation announced April 28 that the first five shows, originally set to run April 29 through May 5, were rescheduled.

Now the entire tour has been rescheduled. Plans have the tour beginning in Vancouver at General Motors Place July 3, followed by Calgary at Pengrowth Stadium July 5; Edmonton at Rexall Place July 6; Winnipeg at MTS Centre July 8 and Saskatoon at Credit Union Centre July 9.

Rescheduled U.S. dates include North Dakota’s Fargodome July 11; Saint Paul’s Xcel Energy Center July 12 and Madison’s Kohl Center Arena July 14. Other changes include Auburn Hills (July 17), Toronto (July 19), Ottawa (July 21), Montreal (July 22), Halifax (July 24-25), Uncasville (July 29) and Atlantic City (July 31).


“The Simon & Garfunkel tour originally scheduled for April – May is being postponed due to a vocal strain recently sustained by Art Garfunkel. In an effort to provide the highest quality performance for their audience, Paul & Art decided it would be best to move the scheduled concert dates. The dates have been rescheduled to allow for an adequate period of rest and rehabilitation, after which Art is expected to make a complete recovery.

“Both Paul and Art regret any inconvenience this has caused their fans and are looking forward to seeing them at the rescheduled shows.”
