Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, including the title track plus With a Little Help from My Friends, A Day in the Life, When I’m Sixty-Four, Within You Without You, and Penny Lane, intermingled with six Pepper-inspired compositions.
Pepperland promises to be one of the highest points of Liverpool’s Sgt Pepper at 50 celebration, the city's extraordinary response to the most influential album ever made, on the 50th anniversary of its release. With performances, installations, live spectacle and moments of surprise across the city this summer, the spotlight will fall on Liverpool, the catalyst that ignited a musical revolution.
