The new dates open in St. Augustine, Fla., on June 1 and close June 28 in Denver’s

Along the way the gigs are basically all arenas and amphitheatres and the dates mostly stick to the regional South and Midwest until a few shows further west at the end of the run.

Simon is pushing tunes from Stranger to Stranger, his 2016 release through Concord Records.

The artist recently had a record he held for nearly 50 years broken. According to Konbini, Simon & Garfunkel were the last act to replace themselves at the No. 1 spot on the sales charts before Future achieved the feat with his two back-to-back releases Future and Hendrxx last month.

The last time the storied duo of Simon and Garfunkel played together was in 2010 and fans hoping for another reunion probably don’t need to be reminded that Paul has essentially confirmed that the group is done permanently. He said in a 2016 NPR interview: ”You know, I mean, quite honestly, we don’t get along. So it’s not like it’s fun. If it was fun, I’d say, OK, sometimes we’ll go out and sing old songs in harmony. That’s cool. But when it’s not fun, you know, and you’re going to be in a tense situation, well, then I have a lot of musical areas that I like to play in. So that’ll never happen again. That’s that.”
