Hit stage show The Simon and Garfunkel Story is Ireland Bound

The Simon and Garfunkel Story is heading to Ireland from London's West End

ANYONE struck by Paul Simon’s rendition of the Simon & Garfunkel classic The Sound of Silence on Later With Jools a couple of weeks ago might want to check out a hit West End show that pays tribute do the American duo.

The Simon and Garfunkel Story tells the tale of Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel from their humble beginnings as rock'n'roll duo Tom and Jerry right through to their huge success and dramatic break-up, finishing with a recreation of their reformation concert in Central Park in New York in 1981.

The show is now on tour and takes in 11 Irish dates this month, starting in Limerick on May 17, then coming to the Waterfront Hall studio in Belfast for two nights, and then stopping in Coleraine (Riverside), Ballybofey, Cork, Killarney, Omagh’s Strule Arts Centre, Dun Laoghaire, Vicar Street in Dublin and the Millennium Forum in Derry.

Labelled “amazing” by singer and BBC Radio 2 broadcaster Elaine Paige, the production features a huge screen showing archive photos and film footage, while a full band performs hits including Mrs Robinson, Cecilia, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Homeward Bound and The Sound of Silence.

The cast features Greg Clarke, Joe Sterling and Dean Elliott.

The Simon and Garfunkel Story comes to the Waterfront in Belfast on May 18 and 19 as part of an 11-date Irish tour. For tickets and all dates, visit www.thesimonandgarfunkelstory.com
