Paul Simon will tour the UK this autumn for the first time since 2012.

The American singer-songwriter is currently touring the US in support of his upcoming 13th solo studio album, Stranger to Stranger.

Simon’s first top-10 hit, Simon & Garfunkel’s ‘The Sounds of Silence’, is currently riding high in charts across the world, including in Britain, where it is currently №34 in the UK Singles Chart (down from a peak position of 29). It also made №4 in Australia and №1 in the US mainstream rock chart.

Starting at the Bournemouth International Centre on 3 November, Simon (pictured) will move on to the Cardiff Motorpoint Arena the following night, then the Royal Albert Hall in London on 7 and 8 November, Manchester O2 Apollo on 10 November and Nottingham Arena on 12 November.

The set will include “classic songs spanning his illustrious career, as well as a selection of tracks from his eagerly anticipated forthcoming album, Stranger to Stranger”, says Simon’s website.
