US musician Art Garfunkel has been located in the US ending a search for the star which began after he failed to show up for a concert in Gothenburg in western Sweden on Friday.

"We lost track of him in Gothenburg," ticket agent Julius Malmström confirmed to the Sydsvenskan daily after the star failed to show for a second gig in Malmö on Saturday evening.

Garfunkel was due to perform as part of a touring concert entitled "Night of the Proms" alongside Anastacia, Måns Zelmerlöw and John Miles, but shortly before he was due on stage the veteran crooner disappeared.

I love the statement that if a singer is missing from a concert in Sweden it could be the end of his career LOL

Sweden, dazzling center of the universe.
I hope Garfunkel's "concern over his voice" did not prevent him from singing Homeward Bound all the way across the Atlantic.

I think there is something wrong with this sentence. "US musician Art Garfunkel has been located in the US ending a search for the star which began after he failed to show up for in Gothenburg in western Sweden on Friday" (show up for what?) Did he fail to show up in Malmo or Gothenburg???
I can understand his refusal to play in Malmo considering how dreadful they treat the Jews there but Gothenburg is not all that bad, yet.

It's a cover up.
He was instantly extradited to the US because local security thought that he looked like Assange.
I guess this proves that the Assange conspiracy theorists are correct.

Perhaps he was using the new maps app for Apple's iPhone and iPad; they couldn't find Göteborg either.

Byke!
"I love the statement that if a singer is missing from a concert in Sweden it could be the end of his career LOL"
I think You interpret the statement the way You want to. Of course no one thinks his career would be effected by wether he shows up for a gig or two in Sweden or not. What Julius Malmström means is that it would be sad to see an icon make this a habbit, cancelling concerts without prior notice, making a bad reputation for himself. I don't think the geographic location for this behaviour is the point he is making.
