Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel have announced they will postpone their upcoming arena tour, which was scheduled to stop at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncassville, Connecticut on Thursday, May 20 as thier only New England tour date, due to a vocal strain recently sustained by Garfunkel. The duo will now tour later this summer and play Mohegan Sun on Thursday, July 29.

“In an effort to provide the highest quality performance for their audience, Paul and Art decided it would be best to move the scheduled concert dates,” read a statement on the band’s official website. “The dates have been rescheduled to allow for an adequate period of rest and rehabilitation, after which Art is expected to make a complete recovery.”

Tickets for the rescheduled show are now on sale through Ticektmaster for $130 and $180.

Fans can expect Simon & Garfunkel to perform a set of timeless songs from their acclaimed catalog, in addition to highlights from both Paul and Art’s solo careers.

Simon & Garfunkel originally broke up in 1970, when both artists decided to pursue other opportunities on their own. The duo has reunited frequently over the years for tours and one-off appearances. Most recently, Simon & Garfunkel performed at the 25th Anniversary Rock & Roll Hall of Fame concert in New York’s Madison Square Garden last fall. They also conducted a brief tour of Australia and New Zealand last summer.
