The Wilson Center at Cape Fear Community College (CFCC) is excited to announce that The Simon & Garfunkel Story is bringing its national tour to the Wilson Center for one show only on Tuesday, February 20, 2024, at 7:30 p.m. The immersive concert-style tribute show recreates the magic and authenticity of Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel on stage, and chronicles the amazing journey shared by the iconic, Grammy®-award winning folk-rock duo.
The internationally-acclaimed hit theater show tells the story of Simon & Garfunkel from their humble beginnings as Tom & Jerry, to their incredible success as one of the best-selling music groups of the ‘60s, and to their dramatic split in 1970. The Simon & Garfunkel Story culminates with the pair’s famous “The Concert in Central Park” reunion in 1981 which had more than half a million fans in attendance.
The show features a set list of nearly 30 songs and uses state-of-the-art video projection, photos, and original film footage. A full live band will perform all of the hits including “Mrs. Robinson,” “Cecilia,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “Homeward Bound,” and many more, complete with the unmistakably perfect harmonies that transport audiences down memory lane.
With more than 100 million album sales since 1965, Simon & Garfunkel’s unforgettable songs and poetic lyrics poignantly capture the era that 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, the Brit Awards honored their “Bridge Over Troubled Water” album with Best International Album. In 2003, Simon & 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.
