After touring to every corner of the world, The Simon & Garfunkel Story continues to play select West End dates at the Lyric Theatre.

The internationally acclaimed immersive production promises to take audiences through the story of Simon & Garfunkel’s incredible career.

The Simon & Garfunkel Story not only tells the tale of the legendary musicians, but relives their journey within a time capsule of contemporary newsreels, adverts and original film footage from the 1960s and beyond, presented using state of the art video projection and remarkable lighting.

Having formed in 1957 as Tom & Jerry, Simon & Garfunkel went on to become the world’s most iconic folk rock group. Revealing the incredible journey shared by Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, The Simon & Garfunkel Story takes audience through their meteoric highs and lows.

From their humble beginnings, right through their worldwide successes and bitter break-up, culminating with a stunning recreation of their 1981 Central Park reformation concert, audiences can re-live the moments that justified their ten Grammy Awards and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction.

Led by Sam O’Hanlon (Paul Simon) and Charles Blyth (Art Garfunkel), a full live band and brass ensemble will rekindle all the duo’s classic songs including: Mrs Robinson, Cecilia, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Homeward Bound, The Sound Of Silence and many more.

Authentic, exciting and revelatory, this critically acclaimed Simon & Garfunkel musical, performed as a concert-style theatre show, has now been seen by over a quarter of a million people across the world, charming international audiences with its heart, story and hits.

Celebrating their 50th musical anniversary, The Simon & Garfunkel Story comes to the West End, performing at the Lyric Theatre at a moment of great pertinence and transporting London theatregoers to the very top of this remarkable duo’s rollercoaster career.

The Simon & Garfunkel Story is an evening not to be missed.
