Another day, another farewell tour coming to Tampa.
Following in the footsteps of Elton John and Lynyrd Skynyrd, Paul Simon has announced his farewell tour will make a stop in Tampa, at Amalie Arena on Sept. 7. Tickets are $50 and up and go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. Click here for details.
Simon's "Homeward Bound" tour will take him around the country one last time before he retires hits like The Sound of Silence, You Can Call Me Al and Me and Julio Down By the Schoolyard.
"I've often wondered what it would feel like to reach the point where I'd consider bringing my performing career to a natural end," he said in a statement upon announcing his initial farewell tour dates in February. "Now I know: it feels a little unsettling, a touch exhilarating and something of a relief."
If you miss out on tickets to the Tampa show, he'll also play Orlando's Amway Center on Sept. 11. Click here for details on that.
