Things are really gearing up for the 50th anniversary of Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, which was released on June 1st 1967.
2 concerts are now planned for the anniversary day: The Bootleg Beatles will be playing the whole album live at the Royal Albert Hall ( which is of course mentioned in ‘A Day in the Life’ on the album) backed by the Liverpool philharmonic Orchestra. Also that day, a special concert will take place at the Jazz Cafe in Camden (St Pepper – Jazz?) with an ‘all star band’ playing the album live, followed by guest DJs playing Beatles records until 1am. So, you could go to the Albert Hall show, and also catch the end of the Jazz Cafe show!

All this, plus many books. Sgt Pepper is going to be very busy come June!
