Looking for a new way to enjoy the symphony in Los Angeles? Imagine experiencing The Beatles live in concert with your Pasadena Symphony and POPS! When Ed Sullivan introduced The Beatles to America in 1964, the face and sound of pop music changed forever. With their mop-top hair, gleeful charm, and a sound unlike everyone else, The Beatles became an overnight sensation. Relive the sights and sounds of The Beatles with the Classical Mystery Tour, featuring four musicians who look and sound just like the original, performing more than two dozen classic Beatles tunes 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, and enjoy the psychedelic blend of “I Am the Walrus” in this summer spectacular. Don’t miss this unforgettable night of the best of The Beatles, and enjoy the Pasadena POPS under the stars.
The Los Angeles Times raved that Classical Mystery Tour is “more than just an incredible simulation…the swelling strings and soaring French horn lines gave Saturday’s live performance a high goose-bump quotient…the crowd stood and bellowed for more.”
