Cheap Trick Resumes Performances of Sgt Pepper Live

“Sgt. Pepper Live” featuring Cheap trick runs through Saturday, July 31, 2010 at Paris Theatre in Las Vegas.

Tickets are priced at $75-250 plus applicable tax and fees and may be purchased at the Paris Las Vegas box office or online at or or by calling 1.888.727.4758.

Touted thusly:

A celebration of The Beatles’ influential album, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the show is an energetic performance that features an orchestra and a captivating experience of light and sound as Cheap Trick perform the entire album live as well as select Cheap Trick songs that lend themselves to orchestral arrangements. At the helm of the production is Geoff Emerick, the renowned engineer of the classic 1967 album. Never performed in its entirety by The Beatles due to the complex studio technology of the day that was employed in the making of the album, “Sgt. Pepper Live” allows Cheap Trick to incorporate their brand of power pop into the classic songs while paying tribute to music legends in an unforgettable musical experience.

Love the Beatles, love Cheap Trick. This show is on my list of must-see entertainment. With any luck, it’ll be a refreshing break from the overblown spectacle of the Cirque shows that populate the Strip.
