Art Garfunkel Cancels Tour Due to Throat Troubles

By October 8, 2012

Follow me on:

Art Garfunkel's vocal problems continue: the former, more angelic half of Simon and Garfunkel, who canceled a reunion tour two years ago with his former partner from throat trouble, has canceled his own solo tour after an abortive attempt at a performance in Sweden a week ago. Garfunkel contracted vocal paralysis -- resulting from weakness in the vocal cords -- just before the reunion tour, but was sure that he'd recovered enough to go out and promote his own new box set, The Singer, already sitting comfortably in the top 10 of the Folk Chart. Art's doctors insisted he was "mending" and would eventually perform; the singer himself issued a statement declaring "I had such hopes of being finally ready to perform. How painful to try and not be quite yet there."
