Day 1 – Tuesday – “Come Together” – Arrive Cape Cod – Ed Sullivan Introduces ”Beatlemania Now”
Come together with your group of music lovers and light hearted historians. Bring us people with imagination and humor, people who when crossing the Cape Cod Bridge, can look at the water below and imagine both The Mayflower and a Yellow Submarine.
On arrival your group will check into a great Cape Cod Hotel (hotels assigned once rooming list is submitted) there is a Meet and Greet Reception with your local tour manager, then a group dinner at a nice local restaurant.
Your evening, starts with film footage of Ed Sullivan introducing those Long-haired Lads from Liverpool.
Our tribute artists “Beatlemania Now” were selected from among America’s Best to recreate this television moment and provide an extraordinary evening concert. This is a show that will have you singing along and dancing in the aisles to “She Loves You,” “Yesterday,” Strawberry Fields Forever” and “Hey Jude.”
Day 2 – Wednesday – Cape Cod & Plymouth History Tour – “Sir Elton’s Tribute Show”
A full day of sightseeing begins with your visit to Plymouth Rock, marked with the date of 1620, Here against great odds, an ordinary group of British men and women landed after an extraordinary voyage. They established the Plymouth Colony and are today surrounded by historical legend. This tour will provide you an understanding of the Pilgrims adventure as you visit the Plimoth Plantation where it’s always the year 1627. Costumed interpreters re-enact their daily lives, as you tour the households, learn about cooking, harvesting and gardening.
Your tour will also visit Hyannisport, home to the Kennedys. Here you’ll see the JFK Museum, the Memorial overlooking the beach, Saint Francis Xavier Church where JFK worshipped. Then you continue to Sandwich; the Cape’s oldest town. While touring the Village you stroll around Shawme Pond, past the Dexter Grist Mill, drink from their ‘fountain of youth’ and tour the famous Sandwich Glass Museum. Note: This sequence of sights may change due to the number of groups attending.
Tonight’s dinner is on your own, your Tour Manager will help with restaurant selection.
After which your group will take their seats in the Cape Cod Melody Tent, the oldest continuously-operated tent theater in America. Here Jeff Scott and his 5 piece band “Benny & The Jets” perform the music of Sir Elton John with a stage show that has a dazzling array of costumes, superb sound and lights, and showcases that flamboyant personality the world has come to love.
Elton John’s music includes such classics as “Good Bye Yellow Brick Road,” “Candle in the Wind” and “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.”
Day 3 – Thursday – Sightseeing Options – “It’s Not Unusual” the Tom Jones Show”
Today is free time for you to plan your own activity or add one of these optional tours. Dinner is included regardless of purchase.
1. The Cape Cod-Provincetown Tour is a fun-filled day featuring the Village of Chatham, Cape Cod National Seashore and Provincetown. You choose for your group either a Whale Watch Cruise or a Scenic Dunes Tour. $45.00 per person.
2. The Martha’s Vineyard Tour includes the Ferry Ride to this 18th and 19th century island and whaling community. You’ll tour Oak Bluffs, The Methodist Camp Meeting Grounds and Historic Edgartown. $79 per person.
3. Nantucket Island Tour includes the High Speed Ferry to the island fondly known as “The Gray Lady.” This charming history dates to the whaling days of the 19th century and is framed by cobblestone streets and Quaker-Style homes. $99 per person.
The evening’s highlight is our show “It’s Not Unusual” starring Harmik. Internationally acclaimed, he is recognized as the world’s #1 Tom Jones look-alike and standing at a statuesque six feet tall and weighing 180lbs, Harmik looks even more like the iconic Tom Jones than the young Jones we remember. His baritone voice and sexy stage presence complete the déjà vu of one of the world’s great showmen.
You will hear songs like “It’s Not Unusual,” “What’s New Pussycat,” “Delilah,” and “She’s a Lady.”
Then before the final curtain – the last refrain of the night explains why we packaged The Mayflower 400 Anniversary with British Rock music – “we simply did it our way!”
And now, the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I’ll say it clear
I’ll state my case, of which I’m certain
I’ve lived a life that’s full
I’ve traveled each and every highway
But more, much more than this
I did it my way
Day 4 – “Hello Goodbye” – Departure Day
In the Beatles lyrics you hear . . .
“You say “Goodbye” and I say ‘Hello, hello, hello.’
I don’t know why you say ‘Goodbye, I say ‘Hello, hello, hello.’”
We hope you enjoyed our playful itinerary and wild reach for a double entendre calling the Pilgrim’s arrival a British Invasion. Our final wish as you leave the Cape is to say “Goodbye” until our next “Hello.”
Groups interested in adding Boston or other New England destinations to this package have only to ask and we will accommodate. U.S. Tours has reserved cabins on the Norwegian Gem sailing from Boston to Bermuda May 29, 2020 – this would make a great add on to your trip! Click here for details.
