Simon and Garfunkel plan Rome concert



Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel will take the stage just outside the Colosseum this summer in what Rome officials say is their first concert together in Italy.

The July 31 concert will be free, officials said Wednesday. It will take place on the Via dei Fori Imperiali, the large boulevard that leads to the Colosseum.

Simon and Garfunkel performed across the United States last year - their first concert tour in two decades, and will be touring the country in June and July, according to their Web site.

The Rome concert will be the only Italian date for the Old Friends tour, officials said.
