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.
