Simon and Garfunkel tour cancelled

Font Size:

Simon and Garfunkel’s planned tour of North America has been “postponed indefinitely” because Art Garfunkel has a condition affecting his voice.

He is recovering from a vocal paresis which “inhibits the duo from performing shows” to their normal standard, a statement on their website said.

The tour had already been postponed from April to July.

The stars, who performed together in the US earlier this month for a TV special, are offering refunds.

On 10 June, they performed Mrs Robinson, which featured in 1967’s The Graduate, at an event honouring the film’s director, Mike Nichols.

But Garfunkel would not be fit for a full tour, the duo explained.
