Simon & Garfunkel Boardwalk bound

They may not be "homeward bound," but Simon & Garfunkel are definitely Boardwalk Bound.

Simon & Garfunkel Boardwalk bound


They may not be "homeward bound," but Simon & Garfunkel are definitely Boardwalk Bound.

Tickets go on sale Saturday for the venerable folk-pop duo's May 21 concert at the 5,200-seat Arena at Trump Taj Mahal. The show is something of a coup for the property and its entertainment chief, Steve Gietka: The Taj not only got the AyCee exclusive for the legendary act, but the team's upcoming spring "Old Friends" tour is primarily a Canadian affair, with a few Midwestern U.S. dates and a New Orleans festival appearance included. The only other East Coast gig is a May 20 show at Mohegan Sun casino in Uncasville, Conn.

Tickets go on sale Saturday; admission is $325, $225 and $175. To order, call (800) 736-1420, or go to www.ticketmaster.com.

Incidentally, Simon & Garfunkel won't be the only legendary pop attraction in Atlantic City May 21. Previously announced is Diana Ross' performance at Caesars.

Philly native Chuck Darrow has literally covered Atlantic City’s casino scene since Day One: He was there on assignment the night in November 1976 when voters approved legalized casinos.

Since then, Chuck has covered the town and its gaming industry for several area newspapers -- which is why, in some circles, he’s known as “Boardwalk Charlie.”
