Paul Simon, 76, is playing his final ever London concerts this weekend but his story lives on.
The Simon & Garfunkel Story, which has been playing at the Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue on odd nights when the Thriller Live! musical takes a break, has announced an extension to its acclaimed West End residency to December.
This critically acclaimed concert-style theatre show is about how two young boys from the same neighbourhood in Queens, New York, went on to become the world’s most successful music duo of all time.
The Simon & Garfunkel Story is a moving and powerful tale that chronicles their rise from humble beginnings as ’50s rock ‘n’ roll duo, Tom & Jerry, to global superstardom.
And it uses state-of-the art video projection, contemporary newsreel footage, TV commercials, incredible concert-style lighting and a full live brass ensemble.
It takes audiences through all the songs and stories that shaped them, their dramatic break-up at the peak of their international success, their solo careers and ending with a stunning recreation of their legendary 1981 Central Park reunion concert.
The show features all the hits including Mrs Robinson, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Homeward Bound, Scarborough Fair, The Boxer, The Sound Of Silence and more.
To date this incredible production has been seen by over 250,000 people across the world.
The West End cast features Philip Murray Warson (Million Dollar Quartet/ One Man Two Guvnors) as Paul Simon and Charles Blyth as Art Garfunkel.
Directed by Dean Elliott, The Simon & Garfunkel Story will play at the Lyric on July 23, October 1, October 29 and December 10.
