Erie Philharmonic presents Classic Mystery Tour: A Beatles Tribute by Alex Bieler

The Beatles are one of the most beloved bands in the world, but most of the legendary group’s fans never had a chance to see them perform live after the then-mop topped quartet stopped doing commercial tours after 1966. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like surviving members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr will be coming to Erie, but local Beatles lovers can enjoy the Classic Mystery Tour with help from a symphonic orchestra.

The Erie Philharmonic will present Classic Mystery Tour Saturday, Sept. 13, a team of four musicians playing the parts of George, John, Paul, and Ringo to perform the tunes of The Beatles at the Warner Theatre. With some symphonic support from the talented team at the Phil, the Classic Mystery Tour men will recreate Beatles favorites like “Yesterday” with a full string section and perform “Penny Lane” with its iconic horn section.

The days of seeing George, John, Paul, and Ringo together in concert are long gone, but thanks to the Erie Philharmonic and Classic Mystery Tour, you can still get the live Beatles experience at the Warner Theatre 48 years after the band’s final commercial tour. – Alex Bieler
