The 74-year-old Simon released his 13th album, Stranger To Stranger, in 2016 at which time he hinted to the New York Times he was likely to ride off into the sunset someday soon
“It’s an act of courage to let go,” he told the paper. “I am going to see what happens if I let go. Then I’m going to see, who am I? Or am I just this person that was defined by what I did? And if that’s gone, if you have to make up yourself, who are you?”
In March of 2017, Paul Simon announced his tour of the U.S., which, through the powers of deduction, makes it his farewell tour unless, of course, new dates are announced soon, which would make THAT the final tour.
