Simon & Garfunkel postpone tour indefinitely

Music legends Simon & Garfunkel are the latest act to axe their summer performances.

The tour that had been set for July has been postponed indefinitely, according to a statement, as Art Garfunkel continues to recover from a condition called vocal paresis.

This is the second time the tour schedule has been shuffled; the duo were originally supposed to hit the road back in April but pushed it back to July because of Garfunkel’s condition.

Although doctors are expecting Garfunkel to bounce back, they can’t predict a timeline for recovery. Since he can’t do his best performance with the condition, it’s “out of respect for their fans that Paul and Art have decided to put the tour on hold,” the statement said.

Garfunkel added, "“I do feel bad about disrupting so many people’s plans but, as I continue to mend, I can’t yet bring my ‘A Game’ to a tour, and I would not perform for you with anything less.”
