Paul Simon is a name that has cemented itself into the “hearts and bones” of audiences all over the world. As an artist, his name has become synonymous, not only with music, but with cultural history.
In this critically acclaimed show, singer-songwriter Gary Edward Jones not only recites the music of one of his idols, but also tells the unique story of Paul Simon combining visuals, stage design and, of course… the music.
After years of comparisons, Gary set out on a journey of discovery and for over two years, he lived and breathed all things Simon, creating a show which has received five-star reviews and standing ovations across the UK and has just completed a hugely successful run at Edinburgh Fringe receiving 4 star reviews across the board.
With classic ballads like The Sound of Silence, America and Kathy’s Song, to the more upbeat Wristband and The Boxer to the much-loved Bridge Over Troubled Water. The show will have you both reliving and rediscovering these great songs again.
“All Things Must Pass”, they say. Well, George Harrison’s name will live on forever. From the creators of Something About Simon – The Paul Simon Story, a brand-new show that will answer the question “where does life take you after being in the greatest band in the history of the world?”
Something About George – The George Harrison Story tells the truly remarkable tale of one of music’s most understated icons. Featuring beautiful songs like “My Sweet Lord”, “Something”, and “Handle With Care”, the show includes incredible solo material and music from rock n’ roll’s greatest supergroup, The Travelling Wilburys - not forgetting more than a few classics from The Beatles along the way. Starring actor and musician Daniel Taylor.
From heartbreak to hedonism and song writing to success, Something About George will show you a life that was anything but quiet.
