Paul Simon: 2011's Ironman

Paul Simon's had quite a busy year. He's been on tour most of the time since the release of his album So Beautiful or So What in April, having played 51 shows in nearly as many cities. Having just returned in July from an international leg that took him through most of Western Europe, the United Kingdom, and as far as Tel Aviv, you'd think his battery would need some recharging, especially after turning 70 at the beginning of the month.

But you'd be wrong. Today, he starts the fall leg of his US tour in Phoenix and will be traveling straight through to December. He'll play 31 more shows in as many cities ranging from the southernmost tip of California, though the Rocky Mountains and Midwest over to New Jersey, and then back down to Hollywood, Florida, where he'll close up shop for the year. And from what we've heard, he's still sounding pretty good.
