Classical Mystery Tour, the Beatles tribute show that combines the music by the Fab Four with a full symphony orchestra, will return to Tulsa on Saturday for a special fundraising concert for the Signature Symphony at Tulsa Community College.
The concert will be 8 p.m. Saturday at the VanTrease PACE, 10300 E. 81st St. Tickets are $20-$40, and available by calling 918-595-7777, or online at tulsaworld.com/mytix
In addition, the orchestra is offering an "Authentic British Dining Experience" as a special offer. Participants will be taken by double-decker bus from the PACE to the White Lion pub and restaurant for dinner, then transported to the theater for the concert.
Cost of this "Experience," which is limited to 100 people, is $150 per person and includes dinner, transportation and prime orchestra seats for the concert.
Proceeds from this event will benefit the Signature Symphony's educational outreach programs.
Formed in 1996, Classical Mystery Tour made its Tulsa debut in 2004 performing with the Signature Symphony.
Unlike such Beatles tribute bands as 1964, which focuses on the group's early years as a touring band, Classical Mystery Tour performs songs that span the Beatles' entire career, from the rockabilly rave-up "Twist and Shout" to the psychedelic sweep of "A Day in the Life" to the string-drenched "The Long and Winding Road."
The performers are veterans of such shows as "Beatlemania" and "Legends in Concert." The cast for Saturday's show will include Tyson Kelly as John Lennon, Tony Kishman as Paul McCartney, David John as George Harrison and Chris Camilleri as Ringo Starr.
