A CLASSIC Beatles album inspired the latest show from the Mark Morris Dance Group.

Pepperland will come to Bradford Alhambra on April 2 and 3 next year as part of a UK and Ireland tour.

Legendary choreographer Maurice pays tribute to the Beatles’ ground-breaking 1967 album Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band during its 50th anniversary year.

Hailed as the first-ever ‘art rock’ album and widely regarded as the best rock and roll album of all time, the long-player spent 27 weeks at number one on the UK albums chart and 15 weeks at number one in the USA.

It won four Grammy Awards in 1968, including Album of the Year, and was the first rock LP to receive the honour.

By request of the City of Liverpool, Morris created Pepperland to pay homage to The Beatles, the album and its landmark anniversary.

The show’s world premiere performances kicked off Liverpool’s Sgt Pepper at 50 Festival in May 2017 and received critical and audience acclaim for both its dance and music.

Pepperland features an original score by composer Ethan Iverson, inspired by some of the album’s most enduring hits: Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band; With a Little Help From My Friends; A Day in the Life; When I’m Sixty-Four; Within You Without You; and Penny Lane.
