    Another summer tour has been cancelled, in what is a very alarming music industry trend in 2010. Simon & Garfunkel have postponed their summer touring plans indefinitely, they pair announced via their website. The reason? A serious one. Art Garfunkel is recovering from vocal paresis, a serious condition that affects vocal chords, and while he is expected to make a full recovery, the dates have not been rescheduled at press time. While so many other bands are cancelling dates due to poor attendance and lack of interest, S&G have a doctor's note, so to speak, and a legitimate excuse for their cancellations.

    The duo were originally scheduled to perform a string of arena dates in Canada and the U.S. in April, but those shows were rescheduled to July.

    What summer tour are you most looking forward to? Was there a summer tour whose cancellation broke your heart into a zillion pieces?
