In April of 2009, after performing three songs together at a concert in New York, Simon and Garfunkel announced they would do a brief tour of Australia, New Zealand and Japan. They began the tour in New Zealand, in the middle of June, before playing seven more dates in Australia. They then traveled to Japan during July, where they played five more shows around the country.
