Liverpool To Pay Tribute To Pivotal Beatles Album
Artistic of the event Sean Doran stated:
" It's never been done before for an album, but Sgt Pepper is something extraordinary, though there have been many moments when we wished it had fewer tracks. It's got that grab, everyone got it, everyone was up for it. "

The festival has received the blessing of the Beatles' own Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr and is expected to draw an impressive turn crowd. Whilst the remaining Beatles themselves are not expected to make an appearance, many other famous faces will be attending. Australian cabaret star Meow Meow will lead a 300 strong procession along the city's Hope Street during 'Lovely Rita'. Aligning itself with the running order of the actual album , the festival will take place in two seperate installments. With a guest appearance from composer Scott Gibbons, the event shall also experience an extravagant pyrotechnics display arranged to the iconic song 'Lucy in The Sky With Diamonds'. Additionally event-goers can expect to see a play from theatre company 20 stories high for the acclaimed 'When I'm Sixty-Four'.
Speaking of the impending occasion Liverpool's Mayor Joe Anderson stated in an interview with the BBC:
" We're not about wrapping the Beatles' heritage in aspic or, if you like turning the Beatles into a Disney-style theme park. But we have to celebrate the place, the city, that gave them their inspiration and helped them write their fantastic work. "
