On this tour, Simon will be performing his brand new album Looking Out, Looking In plus some Who and Casbah Club classics. In addition to his own music, Simon has produced artists both in London and New York. He has performed with numerous established acts ranging from Jeff Beck to Pearl Jam, and including elder brother Pete Townshend, with notable song writing and vocal contributions to Iron Man and Psychoderelict.
