Does the phrase ‘Hello darkness my old friend’ ring a bell? 

Not only is it a phrase that has been turned into a meme across various social media platforms, but also the opening line for Simon & Garfunkel’s biggest hit, ‘The Sound of Silence.’

If you want to hear the iconic track live, grab a pen and mark your calendars because the international hit show, ‘The Simon & Garfunkel Story’ is coming to Manila on the 2nd of March, 2024!

Whether you’re a theater geek or looking into it, this show is the perfect introduction to the medium. Think of it more as a concert, but with the performers dressed up as Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, fully embodying their journey as musicians on the rise till their rift as a duo. Inspiring, exciting, and iconic. You’ll surely enjoy a nostalgic filled night of the duo’s best hits and a full scope of legacy they’ve left in the music scene. 

With sold-out performances from West-End actors/musicians, the concert styled theater show continues to enchant audiences with a blast from the past, as the show journeys through the Folk-Rock duo’s gradual rise in the music scene of the 60s, formerly branded as ‘Tom & Jerry’ during the beginnings of their career. 

The show features the solid partnership that stands the test of time, from a recreation of their renowned performance of the Central Park reformation concert to a series of images and archive footage shown on a projection screen.

Despite the continual hurdles and artistic disparities that Simon & Garfunkel had faced throughout their career, their chart-topping hits stand as the fruits of their labor, as the live band performs hits such as ‘The Sound of Silence’, ‘Mrs. Robinson’, ‘Cecilia’, ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’, and many more!

Swing and sway to an evening filled with nostalgia. With each performance yielding a standing ovation, you might not want to miss this.

The Simon & Garfunkel Story will perform at The Theatre at Solaire, Paranaque City, Metro Manila on Saturday 2nd March 2024, 8pm. Prices start from 1,300 and above. Secure your tickets here.
