Published Mar 05, 2010Remember yesterday (March 4) when we were telling you that Simon & Garfunkel seemed to be on the verge of revealing a full-fledged tour? Well, turns out we were right, or at least as far as Canada is concerned.
The iconic '60s folk duo announced today that they will be playing several Canadian cities this spring, including Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and Calgary, among others. Dubbed the "Old Friends in Concert" tour, the string of dates will also include scheduled performances in the U.S., such as at the New Orleans Jazz Festival on April 24 and in Fargo, ND on May 7 and in Twin Cities, MN on May 8.
Tickets for much of the Canadian tour will go on sale March 12 (March 13 for Montreal), according to the duo's website. There is no word yet on who will open the shows.
