'One of the world's greatest tribute acts'

'One of the world's greatest tribute acts'

Where: Stroud Subscription Rooms

When: Saturday, February 9, 8pm

Critically acclaimed as one of the world's greatest tribute shows, Simon & Garfunkel Through The Years is on its way to the Stroud Subscription Rooms.

Featuring a full live band and stunning vocal harmonies, this spectacular concert takes audiences on a journey through songs and history of Simon & Garfunkel.

The show is a celebration of the incredible rise to fame of two boys from Queens, New York, who would go on to become the most successful folk-rock duo of the 1960s, selling 38 million albums in the US alone and winning 10 Grammy Awards.

In 1981 they performed to over half a million people in their home town of New York and in 1990 they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Collectively known as Bookends, Dan Haynes and Pete Richards who, like their idols met in high school and began singing together from an early age, have been fronting Simon & Garfunkel Through The Years since its creation in 2011. They were championed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe as being one of the best vocal groups touring today.

Alongside stops in London's West End, the show has toured extensively in the UK, Europe and the United States and has performed consecutive sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe since 2014 with concerts being described as 'simply breathtaking'.

Hear all of the hits such as The Sound of Silence, Mrs Robinson, The Boxer and the iconic Bridge Over Troubled Water as well as hits from Paul Simon's solo career such as You Can Call Me Al and 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover in this unmissable show.

Tickets are priced £17.50 (£15.50 concessions) and available from the box office on 01453 760900 or online at www.subscriptionrooms.org.uk/whats-on/simon-and-garfunkel-through-the-years/
