Hey, want to feel old? Twenty-five years ago, Paul Simon released his now trademark album, Graceland! Yeah, let that sink in.
Course, a lot of you were probably just born when then album came out, so you, it doesn't mean much! LOLz!
Anyway, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the album, Paul is planning a tour for next year that is currently in the early stages of planning. We don't know where he is going to go and when, but we do know that he will also be releasing a new "Graceland" box set with Sony Legacy the will release in the late spring of next year. We imagine the tour wont' be too far behind that.
Simon further revealed that he has every intention of reuniting with acts he toured with back in 1987, including - wait for it - Ladysmith Black Mambazo.
Yeah, they are a real group. Tina Fey didn't make them up just as a joke in Mean Girls! Kids today!
Good luck, Paul! We can't wait to see the kind of show you pull off!
