Simon, who rose to fame as part of the musical duo Simon & Garfunkel before going on to huge solo success, thanked his fans as he announced his next tour will be his last.

Tickets for the St. Paul show will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Saturday, with presale tickets going on sale at 10 a.m. on Tuesday.
