Paul Simon Announces ‘Farewell’ Show In London

Paul Simon has scheduled a farewell performance for July 15th at London’s Hyde Park. The gig is the only concert Simon has scheduled for 2018 so far, though it remains unclear if the show is meant to be an official retirement send-off.  The concert, officially billed as Homeward Bound: The Farewell Performance, will also feature James Taylor and his All-Star Band and Bonnie Raitt. Additional performers will be announced at a later date. Tickets go on sale February 2nd, while a pre-sale starts February 1st. Simon’s performance will close out the British Summer Time festival, a 10-day event that will also feature sets from Roger Waters, Eric Clapton, Bruno Mars, the Cure and Michael Bublé.
