BRIDGE Over Troubled Water will be heard near a bridge across the Severn, because The Simon and Garfunkel Story is coming to the Roses Theatre at Tewkesbury.

The tribute show is on tour to mark the half century since the folk/rock duo recorded their first number hit single 'The Sound of Silence' to great critical acclaim which was, in fact, the opposite of peace and quiet.

A spokesman said: "Following it’s West End success at the Leicester Square Theatre, London, The Simon and Garfunkel Story is currently the biggest and the most successful No 1 International touring theatre show celebrating the lives and career of Simon and Garfunkel.

"Featuring a full cast of talented West End actor- musicians, The Simon and Garfunkel Story takes you back through the 'groovy' times of the 1960s. It tells the story of both Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel from their humble beginnings as Rock n Roll duo. Tom and Jerry, right through their massive success, dramatic break-up and finishing with a stunning recreation of the 1981 Central Park reformation concert."

The spokesman added: "Using a huge projection screen, the show features 1960’s photos and film footage whilst a full live band perform all their hits including 'Mrs Robinson', 'Cecilia', 'Bridge Over Troubled Water', 'Homeward Bound', 'Sound of Silence' and many more.

"With every performance creating a standing ovation, this is an evening not to be missed."

The date for the diary is Sunday February 12.
