Legendary songwriter, recording artist and performer Paul Simon will embark on his farewell concert tour. Homeward Bound - The Farewell Tour will encompass shows across North America, the United Kingdom and Europe, with Simon and his band bringing to the stage a stunning, career-spanning repertoire of timeless hits and classic songs which have permeated and influenced popular culture for generations.
According to Simon, the Homeward Bound tour is a fitting culmination of a performing career that began in the early 1960s and has coincided with his artistic journey as a songwriter and recording artist until the present day.
During his unparalleled career, Simon has achieved 29 Top 40 singles in the U.S. alone, with 14 of those reaching the Top 10 or higher, including "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover" (which reached #1), "Kodachrome," "Loves Me Like A Rock," "Mother and Child Reunion," "Late In The Evening," "You Can Call Me Al" and many others. With Simon & Garfunkel, he wrote and performed the #1 singles "The Sound of Silence," "Mrs. Robinson," "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and numerous other timeless hits.
