Art Garfunkel In Close-Up
Blessed with what the New York Times has described as a “beautiful countertenor,” singer Art Garfunkel has made an indelible mark on the music world as both a solo artist and half of the unrivaled Simon & Garfunkel.
As part of his 2019 In Close-Up tour, Garfunkel will visit Colorado Springs, stopping at Pikes Peak Center for the Performing Arts on Wednesday, November 20 at 8 p.m. Tickets, which range from $39.50 to $79.50 plus applicable fees, will go on sale on Friday, September 20 at 10 a.m. They can be purchased at the Pikes Peak Center and The Broadmoor World Arena box offices and online at PikesPeakCenter.com, BroadmooWorldArena.com and AXS.com.
Garfunkel was originally revered for his Grammy award-winning, chart-topping songs, and albums with partner and fellow New York City native, Paul Simon. Their greatest hits collection, which includes “Mrs. Robinson,” “Scarborough Fair,” “The Sound Of Silence,” “The Boxer” and “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” among others, is one of the biggest selling albums ever.
Garfunkel also enjoyed a successful film career, published a book of poetry and released 12 solo albums, the most recent being Some Enchanted Evening in 2007; but singing for an audience is what he does best.
“Taking on the fear and vulnerability of a live show keeps you vital,” said Garfunkel, who relishes the opportunity to perform new and classic material for fans around the world. “I’m a singer trying to get away with a lucky job. I try to soothe, to lift...That’s my life.”
