LOGAN – Straight from London’s West End theater district, The Simon & Garfunkel Story is slated as the next attraction at the Ellen Eccles Theatre on Friday, April 12.

That show will combine the elements of a tribute band salute to that folk-rock duo with the excitement of an immersive staged history that covers the career of Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel from their humble beginnings in Queens, NY to their famous “Concert in Central Park” in 1981, with more than a half million fans in attendance.

Against a backdrop of art video projections, photos and original film footage, a live band will perform all of the familiar Simon & Garfunkel hits, including “Mrs. Robinson,” “Cecilia,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “Homeward Bound” and others.

With more than 100 million album sales since 1965, Simon & Garfunkel’s perfect harmonies and songs that poignantly captured the times 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 2003, Simon and Garfunkel were awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and the following year saw their breakout hit “The Sound of Silence” awarded a Grammy Hall of Fame Award.

Since its premier in the United Kingdom in 2018, The Simon & Garfunkel Story has performed to acclaim in more than 50 countries.

Each year, the CacheARTS organization brings the best of regional, national and international talent to the Ellen Eccles Theatre as part of the CacheARTS Presents season.

Some balcony seating is still available for The Simon & Garfunkel Story. Those tickets can be obtained by going online to www.cachearts.org.

The Ellen Eccles Theatre is located at 43 South Main Street in downtown Logan.
