The Orpheum Theatre announced that singer-songwriter, Art Garfunkel, has cancelled his remaining 2012 tour dates, including a performance in Wichita on Nov. 3.
Official statement from Garfunkel's management:
Legendary singer and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member Art Garfunkel has been forced to postpone the remaining 10 concerts he had scheduled for 2012. Since doctors
discovered a weakened vocal cord in 2010, the singer has been working on mending his voice and is intent on making a full recovery. Garfunkel recently did extensive promotion for
his new album, The Singer, a career retrospective (which contains two songs he recorded earlier this year).
Garfunkel regrets the disappointment to fans who bought tickets as well as the venues and promoters who worked to make these shows a success.
"I had such hopes of being finally ready to perform. How painful to try and not be quite yet there," says Garfunkel.
Manager John Scher says, "Art wants to perform, more than anything. He's going to come back stronger than ever."
