While neither PAUL McCARTNEY or RINGO STARR will be in attendance, Sir Paul has given his "blessing" to the event, which will run from May 25th to June 16th. The 3 week celebration will feature a very unique approach for the timeless 1967 Classic-over the course of the observance, there will be 13 separate multi-media events tied to each of the 1967 album’s 13 songs! The advertisement for the celebration promises "13 Tracks, 13 'Unique' Events, and One City..." In an interview w/ The Guardian newspaper, the project's Artistic Director, Sean Doran said “It’s never been done before for an album, but Sgt. Pepper is something extraordinary, though there may have been moments when we wished it had fewer tracks...It’s got that grab – everyone got it, everyone was up for it.”   MORE info about "Sgt.
