Win tickets to The Simon and Garfunkel Story, Halifax
Has it really been 50 years since one of the most successful musical pairings of all time recorded their first number one hit single The Sound of Silence?
Following its West End success at Leicester Square Theatre, London earlier this year, The Simon and Garfunkel Story is on tour and celebrating the lives and career of Simon and Garfunkel.
Featuring seasoned West End, award-winning leading man Dean Elliott (Buddy Holly in Buddy – The Musical) and a cast of talented actor-musicians, The Simon and Garfunkel Story 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 and dramatic break-up. It finishes with a recreation of the 1981 Central Park reformation concert.
Using a huge projection screen, the show features 1960s photos and film footage while a full live band perform all their hits including Mrs Robinson, Cecilia, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Homeward Bound, Sound of Silence and many more.
With every performance creating a standing ovation, this is an evening not to be missed.
