It Was Fifty Years Ago Today: A Tribute to The Beatles is the name of a new tour from an impressive ensemble featuring Todd Rundgren, Christopher Cross, Badfinger featuring Joey Molland, Jay DeMarcus (of Rascall Flatts), Denny Laine (of the Moody Blues and Wings) and Jason Scheff (lead singer of Chicago from 1985-2016).

Announced on Monday, the tour is scheduled to run through the month of March and will find the artists performing their classic songs as well as selections from Beatles albums Revolver and Rubber Soul.

These musicians are no strangers to special Beatles-related tribute concerts, of course, with promoter Toby Ludwig saying of this new iteration:

“Flower Power concerts has been doing Beatles tributes featuring some of the greatest voices and musicians available for over 20 years now, creating a unique experience that can be shared by all. The songbook of these albums should be our best one yet.”

“This time we thought: Wouldn’t it be great if we played the best songs The Beatles ever recorded for a change? ‘Rubber Soul’ and ‘Revolver’ are the boys peaking in front of our eyes and redefining what pop music would be for the foreseeable future. This is going to be fun.” – Todd Rundgren

“It’s always a pleasure playing these classic songs with great artists and friends. Please come join us.” – Christopher Cross

“The Moody Blues met the BEATLES in the early 60’s and were invited to join them on their second British tour. The thought of performing some of their classic songs with such a revered cast on this tour will bring back not only those moments in time but also fond memories as a member of WINGS. I trust that we will pay due credit to their timeless legacy by bringing back that music to everyone who joins us for this special ride.” – Denny Laine
