Paul Simon to play Paul Newman fundraiser

Paul Simon tickets are now available to see the artist perform at a fundraiser in New York.

The singer is part of a star-studded line-up for the event, which is called A Celebration of Paul Newman's Dream to Benefit the Association of Hole in the Wall Camps.

It will be held at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York on April 2nd and the Graceland creator is to take the stage as part of a bill that also includes Elvis Costello.

Among the other celebrities at the event are Hollywood actor Jake Gyllenhaal and comedians Jimmy Fallon and Tina Fey, as well as Trisha Yearwood, Natasha Yvette Williams and singer Josh Groban.

The event will raise money for Paul Newman's non-profit organisation, which provides the chance for youngsters with serious illness to enjoy time away at a camp.

"We make a lasting impact on the lives of children with serious medical conditions by giving them the opportunity to celebrate simply being a kid - to feel normal," the body states.

Elsewhere, UK fans are in with a treat at the Hard Rock Calling festival, as the legendary Paul Simon Graceland album will be played in full by the artist when he headlines the event.
