Simon & Garfunkel Planning U.S. Tour? New Dates Announced

March 4, 2010 2:17 PM ET

It appears as though the New Orleans Jazz Fest won't be Simon & Garfunkel's "only" U.S. appearance of 2010: Both Minnesota's Star Tribune and North Dakota's Grand Forks Herald report that the duo will perform at Fargo's Fargodome on May 7th and the Twin Cities' Xcel Energy Centre on May 8th in what appears to be the first dates of a possible U.S. tour. As Rolling Stone previously reported, prior to both those shows, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame pair will perform at the New Orleans Jazz Fest on April 24th. (A rep for Jazz Fest tells RS their press release touting the show as the pair's sole U.S. gig was accurate when it was issued in January.)

The sporadically updated Simon & Garfunkel official Website has not yet confirmed the two new dates, but Ticketmaster postings reveal that tickets for the shows go on sale March 13th, so the shows appear to be legit. (That is unless it's that other Paul Simon who's been making the rounds.) According to the Winnpeg Free Press, Simon & Garfunkel will also play their first ever show in that Canadian city on May 5th. Previously, the pair performed at the Rock Hall 25th Anniversary concerts at Madison Square Garden.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
