Melbourne Beatles fans will be treated next February to a music panel event celebrating the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ groundbreaking album Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.
The Masters of Sgt Pepper will be held at Planetshakers in Southbank on February 24 and 25, 2017, and will feature Sgt Pepper’s engineers Geoff Emerick and Richard Lush in conversation with journalist Alan Howe, followed by an acoustic performance from Australian rocker Davey Lane, and an audience Q&A session moderated by Leo Sayer.
This event will be a once in a lifetime thing for Australian Beatles fanatics to gain exclusive insight into the recording process of the iconic album. The stage will be an explosion of colour, with a full size Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover as a backdrop, and screens on either side, featuring dynamic audiovisual presentations as the conversation progresses.
Thrilled to be facilitating this remarkable event, Brendan Pearse of Triple A Events says of the record,
“The Beatles had enough of touring and wanted to create an album that they wouldn’t have to perform live, hence Pepper. I think the colourful album cover is a piece of art in its own right, and back in 1967 at the start of the ‘Flower Power’ movement, it was the right album at the right time. Most of the big bands have had a “Pepper moment” – Eagles’ Hotel California, Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side Of The Moon, and many more!”
