SEPTEMBER 26, 2017

Los Angeles, CA – As the world celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Beatles groundbreaking album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Shout! Factory will release the film of the same name on Blu-ray™ on September 26, 2017, and is available for pre-order now on and Sit back and let the evening go with the 1978 musical spectacular featuring stunning reinterpretations of over twenty classic Beatles songs! Special features on Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band include an Audio Commentary with Pop Culture Historian Russell Dyball, Galleries and the Original Theatrical Trailer.

The one and only Billy Shears (multi-platinum recording artist Peter Frampton) and his best friends the Hendersons (Rock and Roll Hall of Famers The Bee Gees) are four young men from the quaint little town of Heartland. With superstardom calling, this fabulous foursome leaves Heartland – and Billy’s beloved Strawberry Fields (Sandy Farina) – vulnerable to mean Mr. Mustard, who steals Sgt. Pepper’s magical instruments for a fiendish, “evil force that would poison young minds, pollute the environment, and subvert the democratic process.” It’s up to our heroes to save everything they hold dear with the power of music, kindness, and heart.

Featuring performances by Aerosmith, George Burns, Steve Martin, Earth, Wind & Fire, and more, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band is a magical, musical tour through some of the greatest songs ever written, and an astounding time capsule of the late 70s unlike anything you’ve ever seen or heard.

Special Features:
·         Audio Commentary With Pop Culture Historian Russell Dyball
·         Original Theatrical Trailer
