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.

"I feel the travel and time away from my wife and family takes a toll that detracts from the joy of playing. I'd like to leave with a big Thank You to the many folks around the world who've come out to watch me play over the last 50 years."

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.
