After recently scheduling an initial series of 2014 concerts, legendary pop-rock singer Art Garfunkel has officially announced his plans to return to touring this year. The ex- Simon & Garfunkel star, who in recent years battled a vocal-cord ailment that affected his ability to sing, will kick off his trek with a January 29-31 engagement at the Franklin Theatre in Franklin, Tennessee.
Garfunkel's current itinerary includes 14 shows and runs through a March 1 performance in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. More dates are expected to be added soon. In addition to performing Simon & Garfunkel classics and selections from his long solo career, Art will share stories and take part in a Q&A session with the audience at each show.
The singer says of his return to the stage, "The voice is back. I'm in flight again. I believe I have grown through adversity. A new creation has emerged that is truly exciting me -- my stage show."
