Simon & Garfunkel will return to the U.S. concert circuit this summer. The reunited duo has confirmed 19 shows, kicking off June 10 in Albany, N.Y., that will make up the second leg of its Old Friends tour.
As was the case with the first leg, the Everly Brothers will make a special guest appearance during the summer concerts. The 2003 shows found the Everlys turning out a nightly performance of “Wake Up Little Susie,” “All I Have To Do Is Dream” and “Let It Be Me,” and being joined by Simon & Garfunkel on “Bye Bye Love.”
Fans hoping to catch Simon & Garfunkel in their town a second time will most likely be disappointed with this round of dates. “They will play almost exclusively in markets where we have not gone,” Garfunkel’s manager, John Scher, told Billboard.Biz in January. At that time, Scher said a European tour is likely to follow the U.S. outing, and noted a Japanese tour was a possibility.
The 2003 Simon & Garfunkel outing grossed more than $55 million and played to 500,000 people across 32 concerts, according to Billboard Boxscores. It was the pair’s first major tour since 1983.
