Folk super-duo SIMON & GARFUNKEL are planning to kick off a reunion tour in New Zealand, according to reports.
Paul Simon confessed he was blown away by the rapturous reception he and Art Garfunkel received during a brief, three-song reunion at a New York show last month (Feb09), and he immediately set about considering another comeback tour.
He recently said, "Our plan to work together is coming."
And now it looks as if plans are afoot for the duo's first tour since 2004.
Sources tell Rolling Stone magazine Simon and Garfunkel will begin rehearsing in May (09) in New York before launching a tour the following month (Jul09) in New Zealand.
Simons manager, Jeff Kramer, has reportedly told both Simon and Garfunkel to clear their schedules from late-May to early-June.
After the pair's 2004 tour, Simon said, "Because we do this every 10 or 12 years, this is probably the last time were going to do this."
The actor plays the titular hero in the forthcoming adaptation.
Rock legend Eric Clapton has admitted the era of the guitar may be ''over''.
