Simon & Garfunkel - The Concert
24 Jan - Capitol Theatre
Presented by Artist Network & Focal Point Australia
Performed by 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.
"Simon & Garfunkel – The Concert – ‘Here’s to You………"

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.
