The Forest Hills native announced that the final show of his farewell tour will take place in Flushing Meadows Corona Park on Saturday, September 22.
“Homeward Bound – The Farewell Performance” will be the first major concert in the park in decades.
"It seems more like fate than coincidence that I should do the final show on this final tour at Flushing Meadows Corona Park,” Simon said in a statement. “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.”
Ticket will go on sale on June 29 at 10 a.m. at axs.com. American Express card holders can begin buying tickets on June 25.
Simon promises a unique performance, including the possibility of an appearance by Art Garfunkel, his former musical partner that he has known since middle school.
Simon will be donating all personal proceeds from the event to a cause that will be announced at a later date.
