Paul Simon adds dates to his final tour


As expected, Paul Simon's farewell tour will end with three encore performances in his native New York.

Simon, 76, has added 11 dates in September to the "Homeward Bound" schedule, including September 20-21 at Madison Square Garden. The final show will be September 23 at a New York venue yet to be revealed.

The tour's third and final leg kicks off September 5 in New Orleans before heading to three cities in Florida as well as Atlanta, Washington D.C., Newark, New Jersey, and Pittsburgh.

Tickets for eight of the final 11 performances go on sale Friday at 9 a.m. in New York and Newark, 10 a.m. in other locales.

"Homeward Bound—The Final Tour" gets underway May 16 in Vancouver, the first of 20 shows through June 20 in Nashville. Simon will then head to Europe for two weeks in July.
