Tour Dates: Paul Simon Adds Club Shows to Spring Tour

Paul Simon recently announced a spring tour across the country and quickly sold-out many of the dates on the tour, so today the news broke that he’s also added some club shows in the sold-out geographies for the fans that might not have tickets yet. This means that SF fans now get a chance to see Simon at the famed Fillmore with shows also added in Seattle, LA, Chicago, Toronto, D.C. and Boston. Via the press release:

“I’m going to play 3,000 seat theaters and also clubs,” he tells Rolling Stone. “I want to play several songs from the new album and music from my repertoire that I either haven’t played in concert or have played very seldom. I want to let the band be freer. I’m actually really looking forward to this tour. I’ll play a few songs by other people, maybe a couple of Simon and Garfunkel songs. And then late in the evening, who knows, I might pick up my acoustic guitar and sing whatever comes into my mind. That’s the fun of clubs, it’s looser. I can come at it all from a place that’s fresh.”
