Paul Simon farewell tour coming to Toronto this spring

Feb 6 2018, 2:06 am

Legendary singer/songwriter Paul Simon will perform live in Toronto this spring, as he hits the road for the final time as part of his Homeward Bound – The Farewell Tour.

The tour will encompass shows across North America, the UK, 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.

“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,” he said. “It feels a little unsettling, a touch exhilarating, and something of a relief.”

However, Simon added, “my voice is still strong, and my band is a tight, extraordinary group of gifted musicians. 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.”

Tickets for Paul Simon’s Homeward Bound – The Farewell Tour go on sale this Friday, February 8 at 9 am.
