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. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
