“This was not merely a show; it was a happening, a love fest, a sing-along, and a trip down penny lane.” – (Examiner.com)
Experience the original 1964 concert setlist brought to life by the “Fab Four” of the Classical Mystery Tour in a mesmerizing tribute that captures their unforgettable music! The Fairfax Symphony joins the group in the second half for a night of nostalgia as every era of The Beatles’ enduring legacy will be celebrated.
From the early days of “Please Please Me” and “She Loves You” to the experimental sounds of “Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band,” and the timeless beauty of “Let It Be,” the full show presents some two dozen Beatles hits performed exactly as they were written.
“More than just an incredible simulation…the swelling strings and soaring french horn lines gave the live performance a high goose-bump quotient…the crowd stood and bellowed for more.” – (The Los Angeles Times)
Hear “Penny Lane” with a live trumpet section; experience the beauty of “Yesterday” with acoustic guitar and string quartet; enjoy the rock/classical blend on the hard-edged “I Am the Walrus.” From early Beatles music through the solo years, Classical Mystery Tour is the best of The Beatles like you’ve never heard them before.
