The story behind famous music duo

Rob George 20th Jun, 2018

HAVING performed to sell out audiences in more than 50 countries across the world, from Sydney to Seattle, the Simon and Garfunkel Story is currently playing in the West End at the Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue.

This is officially the biggest and most successful theatre show celebrating the lives and careers of folk rock sensation Simon and Garfunkel, 50 years since the most successful folk rock duo of all time recorded their first hit single The Sound of Silence.

Featuring a full cast of talented West End actor-musicians, the Simon and Garfunkel Story takes you back to the ‘Groovy’ times of the 1960s. It tells the story of both Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, from their humble beginnings as Rock ‘n’ Roll duo Tom and Jerry, right through to their massive success, dramatic break-up and finishing with a stunning recreation of the 1981 Central Park re-formation concert.

Using a huge projection screen, the show features 1960s photos and original film footage, whilst a full live band performs all of the hits, including Mrs Robinson, Cecilia, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Homeward Bound, The Sound of Silence and many more!

With every performance creating a standing ovation, be sure to be at Swan Theatre next Friday from 7.30pm.

Tickets are £19.50 and £18.50 for concessions.
