Beloved singer-songwriter Paul Simon announced his farewell tour Monday.

With Homeward Bound — The Farewell Tour, the 76-year-old legend will tour North American venues this May and June before heading overseas for a final stint of European dates in July.

“I’ve often wondered what it would feel like to reach the point where I’d consider bringing my performing career to a natural end,” Simon said in a press release. “Now I know: It feels a little unsettling, a touch exhilarating and something of a relief. I love making music, my voice is still strong, and my band is a tight, extraordinary group of gifted musicians. I think about music constantly. I am very grateful for a fulfilling career and, of course, most of all to the audiences who heard something in my music that touched their hearts.”

As half of Simon & Garfunkel and then in his multi-decade solo career, Simon has produced some of rock and folk’s most enduring music. He’s received 16 Grammy Awards — including Album of the Year honors for Bridge Over Troubled Water, Still Crazy After All These Years, and Graceland — and the Recording Academy recognized him with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2003. He’s also a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

And through all the decades, Simon has remained a vital artistic voice. His 13th solo album, Stranger to Stranger, ranked 23rd on EW’s best albums of 2016. That year, Simon embarked on a two-month North American tour that marked his first run of dates since 2011. The stint included New York dates; the Homeward Bound tour notably does not.

Simon is the latest in a spate of revered artists to announce farewell tours. In January, Elton John, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Slayer all shared plans to hang it up after final strings of shows.

The North American leg of Homeward Bound — The Farewell Tour begins May 16 in Vancouver and concludes June 20 in Nashville. Find Simon’s itinerary below, and head to his official website for ticketing info.
