Simon & Garfunkel at Tanglewood
UPDATE JUNE 17: Tanglewood announced today that the concert has been cancelled. The official reason given is Garfunkel’s “vocal paresis.” There’s now a new Hottest Ticket of the 2010 Summer in the Berkshires, and it goes on sale Friday June 11 at 8 a.m online (and at 10 a.m. by phone or in person). Simon & Garfunkel, who have only occasionally toured together since the 1970s, are doing an “old friends” reunion tour this summer, which is taking them to big venues with convoluted names like the Coliseum at Alliant Energy Center in Madison, WI, and Trump Taj Mahal Etess Arena in Atlantic City. Tanglewood was a last minute addition, and it’s clearly the classiest venue on their schedule. It’s certainly turning out to be a folk-rock flashback summer at Tanglewood with James Taylor and Carole King selling out over the July 4th weekend and Crosby, Stills & Nash on September 6.
One thing’s for sure: every baby boomer in the shed and on the lawn (along with their parents, children and grandchildren) will be singing along to every word of “Bridge Over Troubled Waters,” “Cecila,” “Homeward Bound,” “Kodachrome,” “Mrs. Robinson,” and all the other songs that have made Simon & Garfunkel’s music the soundtrack of so many our lives.
Simon & Garfunkel at Tanglewood on July 27 @ 8 p.m.
