Since our intrepid music writer is running amok in Texas this week at South by Southwest (lucky bastard), I’ll bring you the latest, exciting news on old musicians reuniting for truckloads of cash.
After getting together at some Paul Simon shows in New York last month, Simon & Garfunkel have decided to tour again, according to CNN.com.
So far, reports say they’re going to tour New Zealand, Australia and Japan. I think that’s right – to tell you the truth, I can’t remember what CNN said exactly. But I do remember there were no U.S. dates … yet.
But if they can stand each other through the first couple legs, consider it likely they’ll be around the States. I saw them on their last tour, which was very good. Of course, I mostly went because I wanted to see how Garfunkel’s afro is holding up.
