The Sounds of Simon is a tribute to the wonderful music of Simon and Garfunkel. All The Hits 1957-1987 is the brand new show that does exactly was it says on the tin.
From Hey Schoolgirl, released in 1957 when they were known as Tom & Jerry, all the way through to the hits from the Gracelands album, they are all here: The Sounds of Silence, Homeward Bound, Scarborough Fair and into Paul Simon’s amazing solo career with songs like Late in the Evening, Fifty Ways to Leave your Lover.
Lose yourself to nostalgia as the full band play all the hits that have established Paul Simon as one of the most successful songwriters of all time. Paul and Art are played to perfection, bringing in elements of their famously fractious relationship, as well as replicating the beautiful harmonies flawlessly. With video clips, stories, and memories from the last 50+ years, this is a wonderful show filled with excellent music, nostalgia, and a genuine love for some great musicians.
