The sound of silence following singer Paul Simon’s last ever performance in the UK won’t last for long.
Tribute show the Simon & Garfunkel Story is extending its run in the West End following a surge of interest in the 60s and 70s supergroup.
Simon, who penned the legendary Bridge Over Troubled Water, made an emotional farewell to Britain with a stunning performance in Hyde Park earlier this month.
The 76-year-old is bowing out after decades in the spotlight.
To compensate, the Simon & Garfunkel Story has added further dates to its acclaimed residency at the Lyric Theatre – 1st October, 29th October and 10th December.
The critically acclaimed concert-style theatre show 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 will continue to thrill and entertain Simon’s army of fans.
The show chronicles the pair’s rise from humble beginnings as 50s rock ‘n’ roll due Tom and Jerry using state of the art video projection, contemporary newsreel footage, TV commercials, incredible concert-style lighting and a full live brass ensemble.
The moving and powerful concert features all the songs and stories that shaped them, their dramatic break-up at the peak of international success, their solo careers and ends with a stunning recreation of their legendary 1981 Central Park reunion concert.
It features all the hits including Mrs Robinson, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Homeward Bound, Scarborough Fair, The Boxer and The Sound Of Silence.
To date the show has been seen by 250,000 people around the world.
The West End cast features Philip Murray Warson as Paul Simon and Charles Blyth as Art Garfunkel.
