Art Garfunkel's New 2017 Tour Dates

Article Contributed by RECKONING PR | Published on Tuesday, January 31, 2017

Iconic singer ART GARFUNKEL kicked off 2017 in style with three sold-out shows in Minneapolis and Iowa recently. With over 30 more shows booked in the U.S., France and Italy now through April, upcoming performance highlights include stops in Paris, Milan, Rome, New York and southern California (full itinerary below).

ART GARFUNKEL's "In Close-Up" world tour, with guitarist TAB LAVEN and keyboardist DAVE MACKAY, encompasses his solo hits, Simon & Garfunkel songs, cuts from his favorite songwriters--Jimmy Webb, Randy Newman and George Gershwin--and parts of his forthcoming autobiography. Of a recent show, Minneapolis' Twin Cities Arts said, "Garfunkel showed himself to be an artist of note, a singer whose voice can still resonate extraordinary songs and a human being reflecting on the rather unique and intense experiences that make up his life."

2016 was a banner year for GARFUNKEL, as he toured heavily and continued work on his book, What Is It All But Luminous (Notes From An Underground Man). Set for release September 26 by Alfred A. Knopf, it covers the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member and Diamond-selling singer's eclectic life including early memories growing up in Queens, NY, success with Simon & Garfunkel, his foray into acting in the 1970's and 80's as well as poetic ruminations on love, loss and fatherhood. See more on his book here.

You can dig into ART's website, where he chronicles--in order--every book he has read since 1968 (all 1,246 of them!), his 60 favorite songs of all time, acting credits, poetry and discography:

Blessed with what the New York Times described as a "beautiful countertenor," singer ART GARFUNKEL has made an indelible mark on the music world as both a solo artist and half of the unrivaled Simon & Garfunkel. He has also enjoyed a successful film career, published a book of prose poems and released 12 original solo albums, the most recent being SOME ENCHANTED EVENING. In 2012, he most proudly released his life's body of work, a 2-CD compendium, THE SINGER. Art and his beautiful wife, actress Kathryn Luce Garfunkel, have two sons, 26 year-old Arthur Junior--a magnificent singer in his own right--and 11 year-old Beau Daniel.
