Christopher Cross, Todd Rundgren Lead All-Star Beatles Tribute Tour
Christopher Cross announced an all-star tour paying tribute to the Beatles’ White Album, with a band including Todd Rundgren, Micky Dolenz of the Monkees, Chicago’s Jason Scheff and Badfinger’s Joey Molland.
The shows will include some of the members’ biggest hits along with songs from the White Album, properly titled The Beatles, which was released in 1968. Despite the slight inconsistency in dates, Cross’ road trip has been named It Was Fifty Years Ago Today. It currently runs from September 2 until October 20, with more dates to be announced. You can see list below.
Although the tour documentation stated that it’s “not affiliated or endorsed by the Beatles individually or collectively,” Rolling Stone pointed out that several of the band members have strong connections with the Fab Four. Badfinger were the first band to be signed to the Beatles’ Apple record label, and recorded with both John Lennon and George Harrison, while Rundgren has been a member of Ringo Starr’s band since the ‘80s, and Dolenz was present when Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band was recorded.
