CLASSICAL MYSTERY TOUR
8 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $30-$80.

On first glance, the Classical Mystery Tour looks like an aberration. In full tribute-band spirit, the fake Fab Four anchoring the tour have enough Halloween costume similarities to the Beatles in 1964 that you can pick out who's who with relative ease, but beyond that blip of recognition, they look, like any grown person impersonating another, a little creepy. Particularly because they're clearly a decade a two older than the Beatles were in 1964 and their mop wigs look a bit off-kilter. Don't get too hung up on appearances. These aren't just any fake Beatles. They're former cast members of the Broadway hit “Bealtemania,” and they come to town not to do over-orchestrated covers, but to play Beatles music exactly as it was written. In some cases, that means using only a handful of the symphony, like on “Got to Get You Into My Life,” with two tenor saxes and three trumpets. Other times, like on the crescendo of “A Day in the Life,” most of the ASO will join in. Anticipate selections from the post-Beatles solo years, too.
