Augusta, GA---It's a concert to benefit children for the 40th anniversary of the release of one of the most influential rock albums of all time: Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Saturday night's your rare chance to hear it all, performed live.

We found Ed Turner and his Number 9 band doing a sound check at the Imperial Theatre this afternoon. It's a must-see for Beatles fans. They're performing the entire album, from the song "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" to the crescendo of "A Day In The Life," along with other songs Saturday night at 7:30 p.m.

Turner told News 12, "We're going to do the whole album...we're even giving time in the middle for everyone to get up and flip the record over. We're doing it to a 'T'." Turner also promises some surprises Saturday night.

The show benefits the child abuse prevention projects of the Columbia County Exchange Club, and there are a few tickets left for this show. Click here to get yours.

    Fantastic! Number 9 - You just keep getting better and better!! I believe you all have the responsibility to share this music with others - those of who remember The Beatles and especially those who are too young and NEED to know The Beatles! My Grandsons are already fans! Ed, your father would have been proud of you.

    This was without a doubt, the best ever....if Paul McCartney could see this he would be so proud of the music "The Beatles" created. Hearing your own voice and seeing and hearing the most exact replica would send chills up and down his spine! Someone should send him a DVD, if for no other reason than to hear and appreciate their own accomplishments. Just "TOO GOOD" not to share. I won't miss a one!!! No one should either. Those that are Beatles fans have and will miss an opportunity to hear the greatest music ever. Go to just one, and tell me I am wrong and I will tell you, "You are too old, or you are too young" to appreciate the talent. You will be dumb founded at the famoninal replica done by this incredibly talented band....
