Paul Simon brings farewell tour to Tampa's Amalie Arena in 2018”

- Reuters picNEW YORK, March 13 ― Folk rock legend Paul Simon said yesterday he plans to close out his touring career with a last series of concerts in his hometown of NY.

Legendary songwriter, recording artist and performer Paul Simon and his band are bringing his final farewell tour to New Orleans this fall.

Tickets will cost $45.75-$170.75 and go on sale 10 a.m. Friday, March 16, at all Ticketmaster outlets, including and by calling 800-745-3000.

Go to for ticketing information as it becomes available.

Those NYC-area stops, the last official touring performances Simon will ever deliver, include a hometown show in in Newark, N.J. on September 15, two nights at Madison Square Garden on September 20-21 and a final NYC show at a soon-to-be-announced venue.

During 50-plus years of performing, the 76-year-old Simon has created a body of work that includes 13 studio albums, plus five studio albums as half of Simon & Garfunkel. Now I know: "it feels a little unsettling, a touch exhilarating and something of a relief", Simon said of ending his career.

The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and Kennedy Center Honors recipient announced in February that he planned to retire after his "Homeward Bound - The Farewell Tour", which kicks off May 16 in Vancouver. "I am very grateful for a fulfilling career and, of course, most of all the audiences who heard something in my music that touched their hearts".
