Paul Simon is the latest big name to be confirmed for this year’s British Summer Time Festival in London.
The songwriting legend joins the likes of Roger Waters, The Cure and Eric Clapton at the Hyde Park event, and will himself be joined on July 15th by James Taylor and Bonnie Raitt for a gig which is being dubbed ‘Homeward Bound – The Farewell Performance’.
“There is no finer way to close Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park 2018 than watching Paul Simon take London on a musical odyssey through one of the most remarkable song books in history,” AEG’s James King exclaims.
“Paul, James and Bonnie all together on the Great Oak Stage has to be the show of the summer and a truly unmissable event.”
Simon kept his classic craft going in 2016 when his thirteenth solo album Stranger To Stranger went to number one in the UK on a wave of critical acclaim.
