The nation’s favourite Simon and Garfunkel Tribute slip slide into The Quay Theatre in Sudbury, Suffolk with their highly acclaimed All The Hits 1957-1987 tour on 18th June. Now in its tenth year of touring, The Sounds of Simon delighted theatre audiences up and down the UK with its note-perfect reproduction of the award-winning (…) harmonies of the duo, as well as the much-publicised friction between the two singers.
In all, the two- hour show covers over 25 hits from four decades, including Mrs Robinson, Homeward Bound, The Sounds of Silence and Bridge Over Troubled Water.
In all, the two- hour show covers all the hits released by Simon and Garfunkel and Paul Simon over the course of a 30 year period. Starting with Hey Schoolgirl, released in 1957 by the pair when they were only 15 years old, and ending with Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes from the Grammy award winning Graceland album, this show will take you back and forward through some wonderful music and great songs.
Ben Bowden and Adam Ellis, who play the duo on stage, have been described by music
writers as ‘the world’s best Simon and Garfunkel tribute’ and their full band show as ‘a musical feast for anyone who loves the songs of Paul Simon’. They recently released their new live album, Hints and Allegations.
Adam enjoys the challenge of playing these songs. “It’s great to take a songwriter as brilliant as Paul Simon and then track his development over 30 years. The evening will show how a songwriter practises and develops his craft.”
The show is accompanied by archive footage of Simon and Garfunkel, allowing the stars to tell their own story.
Ben was recently featured on BBC’s The One Show, performing as Paul Simon and talking about Paul’s visit to England in 1965. It was on this trip that Paul reputedly wrote his hit, Homeward Bound. This hit, along with many others, features in the show.
This is a welcome return to Sudbury for the band. “It’s great to come back to old friends,” says Ben. “We were here in 2013, and we’re really looking forward to coming back.”
The All The Hits tour started in 2015 and continues until July 2016.
