The Beatles are back in the QC as Classical Mystery Tour joins the Quad City Symphony Orchestra and Conductor Mark Russell Smith for the 29th annual Riverfront Pops in LeClaire Park.

 

The four musicians in Classical Mystery Tour look and sound just like the Beatles, but Classical Mystery Tour is more than just a rock concert. The full show presents some 30 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 like you've never heard them: totally live.

 

As is traditional, the concert will end with the 1812 Overture, Stars and Stripes Forever, and fireworks. Riverfront Pops is sponsored by McLaughlin Motors, SSAB, Wells Fargo, and Zimmerman Honda.
