BOOKENDS- SIMON AND GARFUNKEL THROUGH THE YEARS are bringing their Simon and Garfunkel tribute all the way from the United Kingdom to Stargazers Theatre in Colorado Springs on their first US tour!
The duo consists of old friends Dan Haynes and Pete Richards and is being hailed as the best Simon and Garfunkel tribute in the world.
The Stargazers performance will include backing by a live string quartet: Colorado’s own Front Range Strings.
The concert will also include a lot of personal touches and extras- along with the accurate live renditions of the iconic works of Simon and Garfunkel, the show also includes images, original footage and interview clips with Simon and Garfunkel themselves. The song list will include such timeless hits as The Boxer, Bridge over Troubled Water, Homeward Bound and Mrs. Robinson.
Cindy Hooton of Stargazers Theatre had the opportunity to have a “chat” with Pete Richards of the duo - one of the questions being since it’s their first tour of the United States and so their first visit to Colorado Springs and Stargazers Theatre, what would he and Dan like most for our community to know about them before they arrive?
He stated “Please tell them that we don’t dress up and we don’t wear wigs! Instead we pay tribute to the music.”
Friends since the age of 11, Pete feels this longtime friendship is what helps the duo to see eye to eye on many of the challenges they face as touring tribute artists.
The best thing about being a tribute artist?
“Being paid to do something we're passionate about and traveling around the world meeting great people! We can’t wait to experience America and see the reaction of our audiences!”

No wigs needed.
