Paul simon Newark

The legendary singer-songwriter has added almost a dozen September shows along the East Coast, culminating with four shows in the New York City area that Simon calls home.

The great Paul Simon, who recently announced his impending retirement from touring, has revealed the final leg of his final tour, Homeward Bound - The Farewell Tour.

The 16-time Grammy award-winner is said to be bringing his performing career to an end, and he will be making a stop at the Amway Center on September 11.

"I feel the travel and time away from my wife and family takes a toll that detracts from the joy of playing", Simon wrote on his website when he announced the tour. I love making music, my voice is still strong, and my band is a tight, extraordinary group of gifted musicians.

The farewell tour will conclude later that month with three dates in New York City.

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.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday at Ticketmaster, the Smoothie King Center box office and by phone at 800-745-3000. They range in price from $45.75 to $170.75. Simon is a 16-time Grammy Award victor, and he received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2003 for his work in Simon & Garfunkel. He was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2011.
