The poster says: June 19 instead of June 15, but a Farewell tour sounds pretty good to me!

A message from Paul:

"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. Sadly, we lost our lead guitarist and my friend of 30 years, Vincent N'guini, who died last December. His loss is not the only reason I've decided to stop touring, but it is a contributing factor. Mostly, though, I feel the travel and time away from my wife and family takes a toll that detracts from the joy of playing. I'd like to leave with a big Thank You to the many folks around the world who've come out to watch me play over the last 50 years.

After this coming tour, I anticipate doing the occasional performance in a (hopefully) acoustically pristine hall, and to donate those earnings to various philanthropic organizations, particularly those whose objective is to save the planet, ecologically.

Once again, 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
New York City
February 5, 2018"


Now we know: This will be his last tour, but not the end of his career. It means a cut for all of us, but we can still hope for a few performances and new music. Beautiful words from Paul!

I would like to find out the "diamond" prices for Dublin.

If I go to London, it is already 640 Euros just for Tickets for 2 people... so maybe I end up in Dublin again ;-)

Omg I can not believe this will be the last concert ever (..)

Alas, France is not the best country for him: largely unknown or underrated. For many French who knows him, he is just Simon from S&G, after that nothing else...

Tickets for Antwerp are 80-90-100 Euro. He plays the sportpaleis. The last time he played there was with Sting and than one was pretty much sold out. The venue can have about 23.000 visitors. It is the biggest indoor in Belgium. Paul used to play in Brussels vorst national and that is about 8.000.
