“Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, we hope you will enjoy the show…”

And “enjoy the show” is certainly what Beatles fans did for decades after the band premiered in the late 1950s/early 1960s. Even after the band disbanded in 1969-70, their music continues to live on for all the generations following.
