Shows about Paul Simon and George Harrison heading to Coventry's Assembly Festival Garden this week

PRODUCTIONS about two of the World’s most famous and much-loved musicians are coming to Coventry this week.

‘Something About George’ tells the story of former Beatles star George Harrison and ‘Something About Simon’ details the life of American singer-songwriter Paul Simon.

The company putting on the show – at the Assembly Festival Garden – consists of theatre producer Bill Elms, writer and musician Jon Fellowes and singer songwriter Gary Edward Jones.

The productions have toured extensively across the UK and have even been performed in New York.

Rather than the common tribute shows, Something About Productions’ musicians authentically honour the music of the stars through beautifully written, directed and stylised shows.

The one-hour version of Something About George will be staged tomorrow (Tuesday), Thursday and Saturday, June 21, 23 and 25.

Starring Daniel Taylor, Something About George tells the truly remarkable tale of one of music’s most understated icons.

The show features beautiful songs, including ‘My Sweet Lord, ‘Something’ and ‘Handle With Care’ – the latter a hit from George’s days with supergroup The Travelling Wilburys. And, of course, there’s some Beatles classics as well.

In between those performances will be the one-hour versions of Something About Simon on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, June 22, 24 and 25.

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.

Go to https://assemblyfestivalgarden.com/ for tickets, which are £13.50 (£12.50 concessions).

Performances start at 7.30pm each evening.
