Singer Art Garfunkel recently kicked off 2017 with three sold-out shows in Minneapolis and Iowa. He has now announced over 30 more shows in the U.S., France and Italy now through April, including stops in Paris, Milan, Rome, New York and southern California (full itinerary below).

In addition, Garfunkel will publish his memoir, What Is It All But Luminous (Notes From An Underground Man). Set for release September 26 by Alfred A. Knopf, it covers the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member’s life including early memories growing up in Queens, N.Y., success with Simon and Garfunkel, his foray into acting in the 1970s and ’80s, as well as poetic ruminations on love, loss and fatherhood. See more on his book here. Pre-order is available here.

Garfunkel’s “In Close-Up” world tour, with guitarist Tab Laven and keyboardist Dave MacKay, encompasses his solo hits, Simon and Garfunkel songs, cuts from his favorite songwriters—Jimmy Webb, Randy Newman and George Gershwin—and parts of his forthcoming autobiography.
