Paul Simon Kicks Off U.S. Farewell Tour – Set List, Videos

Paul Simon kicked off the U.S. leg of his Homeward Bound farewell tour last night at Seattle’s Key Arena. Below you can find the complete set list and fan-shot video of his recent performances.

He performed a mix of his solo work and hits from Simon & Garfunkel, all of which was so well received he returned for three encores, playing a total of 25 songs.

Prior to the Seattle show, Simon, 76, began performed on May 16 in Vancouver, B.C. The videos below are from that performance.

The tour is set to wrap in New York City on Sept. 22, at a location to be announced. Many fans are guessing he may end his touring career in Central Park, a nod to his 1981 reunion performance and hugely successful 1992 live album by Simon & Garfunkel, The Concert in Central Park. You can check the remaining tour dates and ticket information on his website.
