Paul Simon has been revealed as the final headliner for this year’s Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park.

The show – scheduled for Sunday, July 15 – has been billed on promotional materials as “The Farewell Performance“. There has been no further clarification from Simon’s management about whether this is Simon’s last concert in the UK, Europe or worldwide.

Coincidentally, in the current issue of Uncut, Simon’s contemporary Joan Baez has revealed that her forthcoming tour is to be her last.
