Art Garfunkel: Singer fails to show at 2 Swedish concerts

STOCKHOLM (AP) — Singer Art Garfunkel failed to show up at two scheduled events and instead flew home to the United States, Swedish concert organizers say.

Organizer Niels Estrup told the Sydsvenskan paper on Sunday that the iconic 1960s pop singer failed to appear at “Night of the Proms,” a fusion of classical and pop music, in Goteborg on Friday and Malmo on Saturday.

Organizers said they didn’t find Mr. Garfunkel at the hotel but later learned he had left the country along with his staff.

It is unclear why 70-year-old Mr. Garfunkel skipped the concert, though organizer Julius Malmstrom told the Sydsvenskan that he had seen the singer in Goteborg on Thursday and said Mr. Garfunkel looked healthy but did not seem confident about his voice.

In 2010 Mr. Garfunkel was diagnosed with vocal cord problems, according to his website.
