Starring MARK SHELLEY & JOHN ROBERTSON
Simon & Garfunkel - The Concert showcases over 20 hit songs that include Mrs Robinson, The Boxer, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Feelin Groovy, Me & Julio, Homeward Bound, Scarborough Fair, America, & Sounds of Silence………Simon & Garfunkel reflected & defined the mood of the 60’s with their close vocal harmonies & stirring songs penned by Paul Simon. Their songs, harmony & message defined the term ‘folk rock’ & reflected the mood & social revolution of the era.
With record sales in excess of 70 million, & 10 Grammy Awards, they are arguably one of the greatest vocal duos of all time.
Simon & Garfunkel’s music remains timeless, etched in the memories of those they touched at the time, & the generations since who have discovered their songs. Their at times rocky personal relationship was seemingly at odds with their inspired musical partnership.
‘Shelley and Robertson’ bring over two decades as one of Australia’s top duos, to the concert. Their credits include sold out Festival & Theatres (Willie & Roy – The Legends), performing with the Australian Opera Company, Cruises, jingles, TV, & countless venues. With a genuine love of these songs, & with a stunning backing band, Mark and John’s harmonies, musicianship and natural humour, recreate the magic, the sound and the stories of those memorable times
‘Simon & Garfunkel - The Concert’ is inspired by Simon & Garfunkel’s remarkable reunion concert in Central Park New York which was enjoyed by a live audience of over 500 000. It’s a fun, nostalgic & story filled performance that will touch you & transport you back to where you were, what you felt, & who you were with when you first heard their music.
