Classical Mystery Tour to Perform Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band with New Jersey Symphony Orchestra

Concertgoers can relive one of the most iconic albums in rock history as Classical Mystery Tour performs Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band with the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, January 26 at 3 pm at NJPAC in Newark.

The performance features every classic song from The Beatles' 1967 album, from "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" to "When I'm Sixty-Four" to "A Day in the Life"-plus more of the greatest hits from the band's entire catalogue.

The Los Angeles Times calls Classical Mystery Tour concert experiences "more than just an incredible simulation ... the swelling strings and soaring French horn lines gave [their] live performance a high goose-bump quotient ... the crowd stood and bellowed for more."

Classical Mystery Tour features Steve Landes on rhythm guitar, piano and vocals; Paul Curatolo on bass guitar, piano and vocals; Joe Bithorn on lead guitar and vocals, and Doug Cox on drums and vocals. Martin Herman, who transcribed the musical scores note for note from Beatles recordings, conducts.

Concertgoers can sing along to their favorite Beatles songs at a pre-concert NJSO Accent event beginning at 2 pm in the NJPAC lobby. More information on NJSO Accents is available at
