No, not the real Beatles of course (that would be a neat trick) – but the Classical Mystery Tour, a four-piece tribute band backed by the always-great Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra. The show is one night only – this Saturday November 20th 8pm at the Schuster Performing Arts Center in Downtown Dayton. This is the group’s second visit to the Gem City, having played a much-talked about show with DPO in 2006. For this year, the Classical Mystery Tour is the first of three shows in DPO’s ‘Rockin’ Orchestra Series’ with tributes to The Eagles and Led Zeppelin to follow in 2011.
“The four musicians in Classical Mystery Tour look and sound just like The Beatles, but Classical Mystery Tour is more than just a rock concert. The full show presents some 30 Beatles tunes sung, played, and performed exactly as they were written. Hear “Penny Lane” with a live trumpet section; experience the beauty of “Yesterday” with an acoustic guitar and string quartet; enjoy the rock/classical blend on the hard edged “I Am the Walrus.” From early Beatles music on through the solo years, Classical Mystery Tour is the best of The Beatles like you’ve never heard them: totally live.” – ClassicalMysteryTour.com
