Apple has chosen the band’s birthplace for the unique immersive sound experience, which is a worldwide first.
Beatles fans are being invited to listen to Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band as it has never been heard before in a series of free events taking place in Liverpool.
In a worldwide first, the immersive experience will present a remixed version of the band’s pioneering 1967 album that feels as if the band is performing live in the space.
It will be played in Dolby Atmos, which places speakers all around the listeners – even above their heads – to transport them to Abbey Road Studios, where Sgt Pepper was recorded.
Tickets for the event at the Albert Dock’s Dr Martin Luther King Jr Buildingare expected to be snapped up by Beatles fans across the globe – so fans here in Liverpool should book online HERE from 10am today to ensure a free place.
The mix was created from the original tapes by Giles Martin, son of the legendary Beatles producer George Martin and a Grammy Award-winning producer in his own right.
He told the ECHO: “Without Liverpool there would be no Sgt Pepper. Liverpool is where it should be.
