Art Garfunkel cancels Nov. 2 Tulsa concert for health reasons

by Brandy McDonnell Published: October 4, 2012

TULSA – Due to health issues, legendary singer Art Garfunkel has canceled his Nov. 2 concert at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa, the venue announced today.

Tickets purchased with a credit card will be automatically refunded to that account. Cash purchases will be refunded at The Joint box office beginning Friday.

Official statement from Garfunkel’s management:

Legendary singer and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member ART GARFUNKEL has been forced to postpone the remaining 10 concerts he had scheduled for 2012. Since doctors discovered a weakened vocal cord in 2010, the singer has been working on mending his voice and is intent on making a full recovery. Garfunkel recently did extensive promotion for his new album, The Singer, a career retrospective (which contains two songs he recorded earlier this year).

Garfunkel regrets the disappointment to fans who bought tickets as well as the venues and promoters who worked to make these shows a success.

“I had such hopes of being finally ready to perform. How painful to try and not be quite yet there,” says Garfunkel.

Manager John Scher says, “Art wants to perform, more than anything. He’s going to come back stronger than ever.”

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa is located off of Interstate 44 at exit 240. Ticket prices and information on upcoming shows are available online in The Joint section of www.hardrockcasinotulsa.com. All guests must be 21 years of age or older.
