Simon and Garfunkel Reveal Tour Plans
February 19, 2009
Simon and Garfunkel have confirmed plans to tour together for the first time in five years.
The famous duo were spurred on to organise a tour after Art Garfunkel made a surprise appearance at a Paul Simon concert at the Beacon Center in New York on Friday night.
The pair performed three songs together – 'The Boxer', 'The Sounds Of Silence' and 'Old Friends' – and naturally received an ecstatic response from the crowd.
Explaining the reason behind the touring plans, Garfunkel told the BBC: "(The show) had a real reaction - it was extraordinary.
"It was extraordinary so I squeezed that in and did a lot of running around in the last week. Just a hell of a knock-out of a reaction.
"I said to the audience, 'you don't have a right to expect - and we didn't expect - that the interest in us would last and you would still care right to today and I'm touched'."
He added: “Our plan to work together is coming together but it doesn't go through England this time."
