Simon and Garfunkel to begin "Old Friends" Tour!

Simon and Garfunkel are performing and speaking live on WFUV right now and they've just announced a reunion tour! The tour starts Oct. 18 and finishes in December. Tickets go on sale next week.

Update: Check the official website for details (there's nothing there as of this writing, but it's supposed to be up later today).

This will obviously be all over the news, but you just might have heard it here first. Thanks to Leslie for tipping me off!
