Paul Simon preps full spring/summer tour

With his forthcoming album (due this spring), So Beautiful or So What, complete and ready to roll, Paul Simon has now announced that he will tour. With stops in relatively small rooms including Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium and D.C.’s DAR Constitution Hall, Simon is also headlinging the 2011 Hangout Beach Music & Arts Festival in Gulf Shores, AL. 

To preview the album, Simon has made two tracks ("The Afterlife" & "Getting Ready for Christmas Day") available on his site. Have a listen here.
