Paul Simon has announced details of his Homeward Bound farewell tour.

Last week it was revealed that he’d play a set at London’s Hyde Park on July 15 with James Taylor & His All-Star Band and Bonnie Rait – and he’s now added a performance at the Manchester Arena on July 10.

Those two shows will follow a run of dates across North America and performances in Norway and Sweden.

Simon says: “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. Now I know – it feels a little unsettling, a touch exhilarating and something of a relief.

“I love making music, my voice is still strong, and my band is a tight, extraordinary group of gifted musicians. I think about music constantly.

“I am very grateful for a fulfilling career and, of course, most of all to the audiences who heard something in my music that touched their hearts.”
