Published

on

Direct from it’s success in London’s West End, a Sold Out UK tour and standing ovations at every performance, The Simon Garfunkel Story is back! 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!

The show starts on Tuesday May 17 at 8 pm in the University Concert Hall. Tickets are from €22.50 to €25. Tickets can be bought online although booking fees apply. Click on the link below to book your ticket. 

With every performance creating a standing ovation, this is an evening not to be missed!
