2017The SimonGarfunkelStory

The internationally-acclaimed hit theatre show The Simon & Garfunkel Story is coming to Fredericton as part of its tour of more than 45 cities in the U.S. and Canada. The immersive concert-style theatre show chronicles the amazing journey shared by legends Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel. It tells the story from their humble beginnings as Tom & Jerry to their incredible success as one of the best-selling music groups of the ‘60s, to their dramatic split in 1970. It culminates with the famous “Concert in Central Park” reunion in 1981 with more than half a million fans in attendance.

With the help of original film footage and huge projection photos, this 50th Anniversary celebration features a full live band performing all their hits, including Mrs. Robinson (featured in the 1967 film The Graduate), Scarborough Fair, The Sound of Silence, Cecilia, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Homeward Bound, and many more.

With more than 100 million album sales since 1965, Simon & Garfunkel’s perfect harmonies and songs that poignantly captured the times, made them one of the most successful folk-rock duos of all time. Over the years, they won 10 Grammy Awards and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990. In 1977, their Bridge Over Troubled Water album was nominated at the 1977 Brit Awards for Best International Album. In 2003, Simon & Garfunkel were awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and the following year saw The Sound of Silence awarded a Grammy Hall of Fame Award.

“A must for fans, an education to the uninitiated, this is a tribute show made with true respect for the music – and the audience.”
