February 28, 2019 – Richmond, Virginia: Imagine the Beatles playing their timeless hits live before your eyes. Well little darling, have we got news for you! The Beatles are back, this time accompanied by the Richmond Symphony in the Symphony Pops: Classical Mystery Tour – Saturday, March 16 at 8 pm at the Dominion Energy Center for the Performing Arts. Featuring outstanding cover artists who capture the essence of this iconic group, this performance will take you on the musical tour of a lifetime. All you need is love – and a ticket!
The four musicians in Classical Mystery Tour have been delighting audiences for more than 22 years. They look and sound just like The Beatles, but the performance is more than just a rock concert. The show presents some two dozen 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 music you know and love.
Hear classics like Let It Be, All You Need Is Love, Dear Prudence, Here Comes the Sun, Yellow Submarine, Yesterday, and more! The blend of rock influence with symphony orchestration breathes new life into these classics, leaving you humming your favorite tunes on your way out of the concert.
