The Simon & Garfunkel Story extends West End run...

We certainly won't be hearing the sound of silence for months to come! The successful touring show THE SIMON & GARFUNKEL STORY is extending its West End run at the Lyric theatre into March 2018. The dynamic duo of Sam O’Hanlon and Charles Blyth will take to the stage for a series of select dates over the next few months after a fantastic reception so far...

Following an acclaimed opening in London’s West End, THE SIMON & GARFUNKEL STORY has extended performances into 2018. Returning to the Lyric Theatre after touring every corner of the world, the production will take audiences through the story of Simon & Garfunkel’s incredible career.

Having formed in 1957 as Tom & Jerry, Simon & Garfunkel went on to become the world’s most iconic folk rock group. Revealing the incredible journey shared by Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, The Simon & Garfunkel Story takes audience through their meteoric highs and lows. From their humble beginnings, right through their worldwide successes and bitter break-up, culminating with a stunning recreation of their 1981 Central Park reformation concert, audiences can re-live the moments that justified their ten Grammy Awards and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction.

THE SIMON & GARFUNKEL STORY not only tells the tale of the legendary musicians, but relives their journey within a time capsule of contemporary newsreels, adverts and film footage from the 1960s and beyond.

Led by Sam O’Hanlon (Paul Simon) and Charles Blyth (Art Garfunkel), a full live band and brass ensemble will rekindle all the duo’s classic hits including: Mrs Robinson, Cecilia, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Homeward Bound, The Sound of Silence and many more.

The West End dates are now 6 November, 4 December 2017 and 22 January, 26 February & 26 March 2018, 7.30pm.
