Though no longer touring, PAUL SIMON has stated his commitment to perform in benefit of philanthropic organizations he supports, particularly in the area of environmental protection – a major focus of Outside Lands festival. PAUL SIMON will be donating the entire net proceeds from this rare performance to local environmental non-profits.
I’m looking forward with great anticipation to playing at Golden Gate Park this summer. This will be my first appearance there, and it’s an honor to join the long line of musicians who’ve given the park its sanctified musical heritage. I’m equally pleased to be playing in San Francisco with its well-deserved reputation for being in the forefront of environmental issues. I’m grateful for the opportunity to be of service to this vital causePaul Simon
