Saturday To-Do: Arkansas Symphony Orchestra: Classical Mystery Tour

ASO: 'CLASSICAL MYSTERY TOUR: A TRIBUTE TO THE BEATLES'
8 p.m. Robinson Center Music Hall. $18-$58.

Tribute acts have become something of a cottage industry over the last few years, and probably no group has been paid as much tribute as The Beatles. So what's an industrious young Fab Four tribute band to do in order to distinguish itself?

How about performing with a symphony so as to create more accurate renditions of such lushly recorded classics as "Strawberry Fields Forever," "Eleanor Rigby," "A Day in the Life" and many others? That's exactly what Classical Mystery Tour does. The band comes to town to perform alongside the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra and conductor Geoffrey Robson on Saturday and again on Sunday at 3 p.m.

I was really hoping to see what must surely be everyone else's two favorite Beatles songs — "Helter Skelter" and "Revolution 9" on Classical Mystery Tour's song list, but alas, it looks like we'll have to keep waiting.
