UPDATE: Paul Simon coming to Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater
Even for Ruth Eckerd Hall, one of the stateliest venues in Tampa Bay, this is a shockingly great get: Paul Simon.
According to Pollstar and his website, the legendary singer-songwriter has tacked a few new dates onto his fall "So Beautiful or So What" tour, including a date Dec. 5 at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater.
Before you ask, no, this is not one of his just-announced Graceland 25th anniversary shows, alongside Ladysmith Black Mambazo. If it's anything like his recent shows, it'll be heavy on material from his latest album, So Beautiful or So What, peppered with hits like 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover, The Obvious Child and Slip Slidin' Away.
Simon's website says tickets will go onsale Friday, Oct. 15, but Ruth Eckered Hall isn't confirming anything just yet. Stay tuned.
***UPDATE*** Tickets are $62.50-$128, and they go onsale Oct. 22 at noon. Click here.
