Everlys Open for Simon & Garfunkel

The Everly Brothers, known for their classics “Bye Bye Love” and “Wake Up, Little Susie,” will open shows on Simon & Garfunkel’s “Old Friends” reunion tour. The duos performed their first set together on Thursday (Oct. 16) in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. In a statement, Simon said, “Art and I learned to sing as a duo by listening to Everly Brothers records and practicing their harmonies. We’re both great fans of their singing and guitar playing.” The Everly Brothers were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2001, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986. 10/20/03
