Art Garfunkel, one half of the legendary duo Simon and Garfunkel, will return to Israel on June 10 for a solo show at Bloomfield Stadium.

Alongside Paul Simon, the 73-year-old Garfunkel made musical history with “Sounds of Silence,” “Bridge Over Troubled Waters,” “The Boxer” and dozens of other songs – adding pristine high harmonies to Simon’s iconic material.

Following their 1971 breakup, Simon went on to a successful solo career, while Garfunkel remained on the pop charts during the 1970s, before retreating to the sidelines. He continued to sporadically release albums and dabble in acting.

The duo has reunited numerous times, and in 1983, they performed two shows in Israel. Garfunkel performed in Tel Aviv in 1998 and Simon was most recently here in 2011 for a sold-out show at Ramat Gan Stadium.


At a recent show in England, Garfunkel, accompanied by a guitarist, performed over two dozen songs in a 90-minute set sprinkled with stories about his career and life. Reviews reported he was in fine vocal form, and included most of the beloved hits from the S&G oeuvre including “Homeward Bound” and “Scarborough Fair” as well as solo hits like “Bright Eyes.”

Ticket for the show range from NIS 299 to NIS 1,000 and are on sale as of Thursday at www.leaan.co.il
