One of the reasons The Beatles stopped touring after 1966 was that so many of their latter-day songs such as “Strawberry Fields Forever” and “I Am the Walrus” were too difficult to recreate out of the studio milieu.
Now, Israel’s premier Beatles tribute band, Magical Mystery Tour, is teaming up with the Israel Chamber Orchestra and a host of guest performers to bring those songs as well as the Fab Four’s earlier hits to life in a series of shows across the country.
The shows will be emceed by the dean of Israeli Beatle scholars, Yoav Kutner, and each performance will include a special guest from a luminary list of Hemi Rodner, Yirmi Kaplan, Daniel Solomon, Eran Tsur and Dana Berger. Rare videos of The Beatles will also be screened on a backdrop.
The tour begins October 13 at the Herzliya Cultural Center and continues with shows in Ashdod, Jerusalem, Petah Tikva and more locations through November.
A ticket to ride costs NIS 149.
