'THE SIMON AND GARFUNKEL STORY'
50TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION at Buxton Opera House
Sunday 8th May
Has it really been 50 years since the most successful Folk/Rock Duo of all time recorded their first no1 hit single 'The Sound of Silence'?
Following it’s WEST END success at the ‘Leicester Square Theatre’, London, ‘The Simon and Garfunkel Story' is currently the biggest and the most successful No 1 International touring theatre show celebrating the lives and career of Folk/Rock sensation Simon and Garfunkel.
Featuring seasoned West End, leading man GREG CLARKE and a full cast of talented actor- musicians, 'The Simon and Garfunkel Story' takes you back through 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 their massive success, dramatic break-up and finishing with a stunning recreation of the 1981 Central Park reformation concert.
Using a huge projection screen, the show features 1960’s photos and film footage whilst 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!
