Simon took to social media today to say his upcoming tour will be his last, citing the personal toll of touring and the death of his lead guitarist.
Tickets for his "Homeward Bound - The Farewell Tour" will go on sale Feb. 8. It kicks off in May in Vancouver, Canada, and will take him across North America and Europe.
His last date is July 15 in London with James Taylor and Bonnie Raitt as special guests.
Simon's best-known songs include The Sound of Silence, Mrs. Robinson, Bridge Over Troubled Water and Diamonds On the Soles of Her Shoes.
