Abstract: It is shown that an arbitrary free action of the circle group on a closed manifold of dimension at least six is concordant to a ``tame'' action (so that the orbit space is a manifold). A consequence is that the concordance classification of arbitrary free actions of the circle on a simply connected manifold is the same as the equivariant homeomorphism classification of free tame actions.
