If there is any Kodachrome left in that antique film camera, save it for June 25. That’s when Paul Simon comes to Lake Tahoe.

A 16-date United States tour was announced today on “Rhymin’ ” Paul Simon’s website. The stop at the Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena at Harveys will be his penultimate concert. Tickets go on sale at Ticketmaster and Another Planet Entertainment websites on March 17.

It is hard to imagine a more impressive musical career. Simon has won 16 Grammy Awards and is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2007, Simon was the first to receive the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song by the Library of Congress. He has an Honorary Doctor of Music degree from Berklee College of Music, and Rolling Stone named him as both one of the greatest songwriters and guiitarists.

He started off his career in 1964 in the duo Simon and Garfunkel, which had songs such as “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “Feeling Groovy,” “Mrs. Robinson” and “Sound of Silence.” Simon went on to the pen iconic tunes “Still Crazy After All These Years,” “Graceland,” “You Can Call Me Al,” “Diamond on the Souls of Her Feet,” “Slip Slidin’ Away,” “Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard” and “Kodachrome.”

Last June, Simon released his 13th solo album, “Stranger to Stranger.”

He performed at Harveys in 2006.

On Friday, June 30, reggae rockers Rebelution will appear at the Harveys Outdoor Arena, along with Nahko and Medicine for the People, HIRIE and Collie Buddz.

Other shows announced for the series are Sammy Hagar and the Circle on July 7, Train, Natasha Bedingfield and O.A.R on Sunday, July, 9; Third Eye Blind on Sunday, July 16; surf rocker Jack Johnson with Animal Liberation Orchestra on Friday, July 28, and Slightly Stoopid, Iration, J Boog and The Movement on Friday, Aug. 4.
