The Simon Garfunkel Story – 50th Anniversary Tour
St David’s Hall
Wednesday 15 June
WHEN an unlikely pair of childhood friends from New York first met in the 1950s, little did they know they would conquer the world.
But that’s exactly what Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel did with their melodic brand of folk rock. And now St David’s Hall will celebrate their amazing career in with the spectacular 50th anniversary tour of The Simon & Garfunkel Story on Wednesday 15 June.
Since releasing their first album Wednesday Morning, 3am, the dynamic duo have achieved enormous success including BRIT awards, inductions into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and even winning an incredible 10 Grammys!
Yet, their initial popularity was slow-burning until their chart-topping single The Sound of Silence propelled them to worldwide fame. Subsequent albums Bookends and Bridge Over Troubled Water also reached No.1 with the latter’s title track also reaching the top spot. However, Simon & Garfunkel are most well known for their huge chart-topper Mrs Robinson, which memorably featured in the classic film The Graduate in 1968.
Fresh from an amazing run in the West End, The Simon & Garfunkel Story tells their tale from their humble beginnings as rock duo ‘Tom & Jerry’ through to their stunning success and dramatic break-up. Yet, their remarkable reformation concert at New York’s Central Park in 1981 provides the show with a fitting finale.
Impeccably performed by the award-winning leading man Dean Elliott and a spectacular cast of actor-musicians, this sensational show will have you reliving the sights and sounds of the 60s in no time!
This brand new show for 2016 features huge video projection relaying the photos and footage from an unforgettable era whilst a full live band reels off all the hits including Cecilia, The Boxer, Homeward Bound and many more!
Don’t miss this celebration of the world’s finest folk duo in The Simon & Garfunkel Story at St David’s Hall!
