Beatles tribute band Yesterday will perform at the Sandwich Opera House March 29.

Founded by John Lennon impersonator Don Bellezzo right out of college, Yesterday goes to fanatical lengths to isolate and perfect all eras of the Beatles’ music.

Coming to the Sandwich Opera House at 8 p.m. March 29, as musical icons “The Beatles,” Yesterday will transport its audience to a bygone era of innocence.

Yesterday was created in Las Vegas 15 years ago. In the summer of 2007, the band hit the stage in Atlantic City for what was supposed to be a three-month run. The Beatles tribute band was such a success it was given multiple contract extensions to remain in its custom-made Tropicana venue, The Liverpool Club. When the production closed in 2010, it was the longest-running show in Atlantic City history.

Tickets cost $25, $20 for seniors 65 and older and $15 for students, and can be purchased at the Opera House box office, 140 E. Railroad St. in Sandwich, from 8:30 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Tickets also can be reserved with a credit card by calling 815-786-2555 during those hours. The box office will open at 7 p.m. the evening of the show.

Programs at the Sandwich Opera House are partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
