The Simon & Garfunkel Story: On tour at the Grand Opera House, York

THE Simon & Garfunkel Story returns to the Grand Opera House, York, on May 27 to celebrate the songs of the folk-rock duo from Queens, New York.

The 7.30pm performance features a cast of West End actor-musicians telling the story of elementary school friends Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, from their humble beginnings as rock’n’roll duo Tom and Jerry, through to their 1960s success, relationship troubles and dramatic break-up in 1970, finishing with a re-creation of their 1981 Central Park reunion concert.

Using a large projection screen, the show features 1960s’ photos and film footage while a live band performs such favourites as The Sound Of Silence, The Boxer, Mrs Robinson, Cecilia, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Homeward Bound, I Am A Rock and America.

The Simon & Garfunkel Story heads to York on the back of a week-long West End run at the Vaudeville Theatre and sold-out performances in 50 countries worldwide,
