Paul Simon Announces Tour Dates
Published May 17, 2006

Paul Simon will kick off the first leg of his 2006 U.S. tour in support of his new Warner Bros. CD 'Surprise' with a series of dates, which commence in Columbus, OH, on June 28. Simon recently debuted his new band as well as songs from his brilliant new album during a set at New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, which earned cover story kudos in USA Today and inspired the New Orleans Times-Picayune to write, "Almost everything seemed perfect Sunday afternoon when Paul Simon walked out... Simon's set at the Acura Stage was a final healing balm for a population desperately in need of it."

Paul Simon's touring band is: Steve Gadd (drums), Mark Stewart (keyboards, woodwinds, guitar), Andy Snitzer (keyboards, woodwinds), Tony Cedras (keyboards, trumpet), Bakithi Kumalo (bass), and Vincent Nguini (guitar).

'Surprise' was produced by Paul Simon and features some of Simon's best songwriting and performances since the 'Graceland' album. The New York Daily News said Simon has "forged something focused and strong," and the Washington Post proclaimed that 'Surprise' "may be his best yet." Meanwhile, Simon was recently named as one of the "100 people who shape our world" by Time Magazine, joining Al Gore, Elie Wiesel and others in the Heroes and Pioneers category.
