Art Garfunkel will embark on a book tour this fall in support of his forthcoming memoir, What Is It All But Luminous: Notes From an Underground Man, which will be published September 26th.
The trek begins September 25th in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, while the musician will be in New York City for the book’s official release on the 26th. The tour includes stops in Washington D.C., Dallas, Seattle, San Francisco and more before wrapping October 15th in Miami. Tickets and additional venue information are available on Garfunkel’s website.
What Is It All But Luminous finds Garfunkel chronicling his boyhood in Queens, meeting Paul Simon in school and recording their first hit together, “Hey Schoolgirl,” at age 16 under the name Tom and Jerry. The book also delves into Garfunkel’s fruitful and fraught friendship with Simon and their remarkable music career together, as well as his solo career, work as an actor, getting his masters in mathematics, nearly losing his voice and gaining it back.
Along with the book tour, Garfunkel has several concerts planned for this fall as he continues his “In Close-Up” world tour. The trek includes a two-night stand at City Winery in Chicago September 11th and 12th, two nights at City Winery in Boston October 26th and 27th, as well as a gig at the Stadium Theater PAC in Woonsocket, Rhode Island October 28th. Garfunkel will tour Japan in November, while he already has another North American leg scheduled for 2018.
