Plans are under way for another leg of the hugely successful Simon & Garfunkel tour, Billboard.biz has learned. The 2003 outing wrapped Dec. 21 in Tampa, Fla., having grossed $53 million and played to 500,000 people.
North American arenas are on hold. Garfunkel's manager, John Scher, confirms that the duo has tentative plans to play more dates, beginning in the latter half of June and running through August. The Everly Brothers would remain as support.
"They will play almost exclusively in markets where we have not gone," Scher says. The tour "may go back to a market that was underplayed the first time around," he adds.
The North American dates could be followed by European shows; there is also a chance for a brief run in Japan.
William Morris Agency (Garfunkel) and CAA (Simon) are U.S. agents for the tour; Neil Warnock at the Agency Group and Barry Dickins at International Talent Booking are handling international dates. Scher and Simon's manager, Jeff Kramer, are partners in the outing.
