SIMON AND GARFUNKEL
Saw that show in Pensacola Florida. It was amazing. They went all the way back to “Tom and Jerry” days. Harmonies we’re great. Told the story through the years. Did all the major songs. Anyone who loves Simon and Garfunkel must see the show.

Colleen B from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan
Just saw this show in Saskatoon- it was SOOOOO fantastic. Not only were 'Simon and Garfunkel' outstanding but the band was amazing. This show is an absolute must see!!
John Gunther from Pensacola, Florida
Really a great show. He sang many of my favorites, and his son also has a very nice voice. He thanked the crowd and passed some wisdom on to all attending.
DonP from Chicago, Illinois
This was a bad news, good news story. The first act dragged with dreary methodical academic plodding. Saved However by an upbeat second act that hit the high notes of the careers of S&G. The media backdrop was also disconcerting and frankly a wasteful distraction. While we enjoyed the best of the show, and had no problems with the quality of the artists, we left disappointed that a very important part of our life was sadly diminished by the shallow commercial dialogue accompanying the music, Worth seeing? Maybe but know that you are being used by opportunists playing on your nostalgia for the “good old days”.

THE SIMON & GARFUNKEL STORY
The music was beautiful of course, but the show was poorly executed. There was a huge screen behind the performers that, most of the time, showed mundane images such as the London skyline, the Brooklyn Bridge and various nature shots. To be fair, there were occasionally iconic photos of the 60s which served to rouse the audience’s nostalgia. The worst part of the show was the dialogue. It was just awful! It was more like a high school freshman’s essay than the work of a professional playwright. Then there was that embarrassing/insulting moment when “Art” forgot where he was performing. “Providence” his partner stage whispered. Really, this was just an overpriced tribute band. If they were playing at Lupo’s there’d be fifty people watching the instead of the 2000 at the Vets at one third of the price. This show was pure exploitation of a great band and a bamboozled audience.
Diana from Dayton, Ohio
The venue is wonderful but for this concert, the sound was very bad. Any dialogue between the songs was unintelligible, the stage was very dark with only a few lights to highlight the performers, and the visuals on the large screen did not match the timeline that they were portraying. You know, the show is disappointing in both quality and expression of the performers.
