Simon & Garfunkel Story
November 6, 2017
EDMONTON - June 6, 2017 - The internationally-acclaimed hit
theater show The Simon & Garfunkel Story will play the
Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium in Edmonton on November
6 on its tour of more than 45 U.S. and Canadian cities from
coast to coast. The immersive concert-style theater show
chronicles the amazing journey shared by the folk-rock duo,
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 "The Concert in Central Park" reunion in 1981 with
more than half a million fans in attendance. Check
for Edmonton ticket information and on-sale dates.
Using huge projection photos and original film footage,
this 50th Anniversary celebration also features a full live
band performing all of their hits, including 'Mrs.
Robinson' (featured in the 1967 film The Graduate),
'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 and Garfunkel were
awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and the
following year saw their "The Sound of Silence" awarded a
Grammy Hall of Fame Award.
