PSO POPS! to Perform with Beatles Tribute Band, November 15-16

Featuring original members of the Broadway sensation BEATLEMANIA performing live in concert with the Portland Symphony Orchestra

Imagine The Beatles playing in concert with a symphony orchestra. What would that have sounded like? Find out for yourself at Classical Mystery Tour - a tribute to The Beatles featuring original members of the Broadway sensation "BEATLEMANIA" performing live in concert with the Portland Symphony Orchestra at Merrill Auditorium on Saturday, November 15 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, November 16 at 2:30 p.m.

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 show presents some 20 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.

Classical Mystery Tour features Jim Owen (John Lennon) on rhythm guitar, piano, and vocals; Tony Kishman (Paul McCartney) on bass guitar, piano, and vocals; Tom Teeley (George Harrison) on lead guitar and vocals; and Chris Camilleri (Ringo Starr) on drums and vocals. Music Director Robert Moody conducts.

Classical Mystery Tour is sponsored by New England Coffee and Holiday Inn by the Bay. Ticket prices range from $17 to $62, with special pricing available for students, seniors and groups. All Portland Symphony Orchestra tickets are sold through PortTix at (207) 842-0800 or, and new this year, the website offers real-time online seat selection.
