Paul Simon is in the midst of his Homeward Bound Farewell Tour, which will mark the final major outing for the legendary singer-songwriter, and the final date has been confirmed today as a homecoming show for Simon in Queens, NY.
Simon, who spent a portion of his childhood in the New York City borough, will play a grand finale show at Flushing Meadows Corona Park on September 22, following a two-night run at NYC’s Madison Square Garden.
“It seems more like fate than coincidence that I should do the final show on this final tour at Flushing Meadows Corona Park,” Simon says in a statement about the performance. “I could have ridden my bike from home to the park in about 20 minutes, when I was a kid. But this is less a goodbye than a farewell. Thank you all for the ride, I had a great time.”
Tickets for the Queens show go on sale June 29 at 10am ET, with an American Express pre-sale beginning June 25. More information can be found here.
Simon plays tonight in Nashville before heading on a European swing later this month and into July. See his full remaining Homeward Bound tour dates below.
