Multimedia show pays homage to legends Simon and Garfunkel

‘The Simon and Garfunkel Story’ takes audiences through the career of popular folk duo

There’ll be a lot more than the “Sound of Silence” when the North American tour of The Simon & Garfunkel Story hits the stage at the Royal Theatre on March 4.

The semi-biographical musical show about acclaimed folk-rock duo Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel has been touring internationally since a sold-out run in London’s West End. The Simon & Garfunkel Story utilizes projection photos and archival film footage, with a full live band performing classic hits including “Mrs. Robinson,” “Cecelia,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “Homeward Bound” and many more.

Simon and Garfunkel need no introduction, with 10 Grammy Awards to their name, induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and over 100 million records sold since 1965.

Audiences will be treated to a trip showing the humble beginnings of the musicians in their first collaboration as Tom & Jerry, followed by their meteoric rise to fame in the 60’s, their split in 1970 and the climactic reunion at The Concert in Central Park in New York in 1981 – an incredible show attended by more than 500,000 fans.

Showtime is 7:30 p.m Wednesday, March 4 and tickets start at $52.75. You can find them online at rmts.bc.ca, call 250-386-6121 or visit the Royal and McPherson box offices.
