George Harrison's famous Sgt. Pepper suit, worn by George on the album cover "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" as well as in the music videos "Hello Goodbye" and "Ding Dong Ding Dong" is to go on display in London, alongside John Lennon's Sgt Pepper suit. Whereas Lennon's suit has been exhibited several times by museums, this is the first time George's widow, Olivia Harrison has allowed his suit to be displayed. When George wanted to make use of the suit for his retrospective music video for "When We Was Fab", the suit was so badly faded that he had a replica made for the shoot.

The occasion is a new exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum, "You Say You Want a Revolution? Records and Rebels 1966-70" which opens September 10 and runs to February 26, 2017. Alongside the Pepper suits, the handwritten lyrics for Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds will also be exhibited, and perhaps also the Eye mosaic from John Lennon's swimming pool at Kenwood.
