Looking Back on Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Steve Matteo, Boomer, 1 June 2017
FOR THE BEATLES, the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album, released on June 1, 1967, may have really begun on Aug. 29, 1966, at Candlestick Park in San Francisco. It was on that date that the group ceased touring and effectively ended its time as a live band. As the Beatles left the concert, George Harrison may have quipped that the Beatles were over, but, in fact, the event would mark the prelude to the group's greatest collective work, which still stands for many critics and music fans as the most important album ever made.
