Press Release / LAS VEGAS- “Sgt. Pepper Live,” featuring Cheap Trick, will be presented at the Las Vegas Hilton September 13-15, 17-19 and 21-23 in a Bill Edwards Presents, Inc. production. The performances, with special musical guests to be announced, will feature a full symphony orchestra, audio production by Geoff Emerick and set design by Reneм Lagler.
“One of America's greatest bands ever, doing their live interpretation of this classic rock album, an album nobody believed could be performed outside the recording studio, sets a new standard for rock and entertainment in Las Vegas,” said Ken Ciancimino, executive vice president of the Las Vegas Hilton.
“We are going to make rock 'n' roll history by incorporating this legendary American rock group with the music of the Beatles,” said Bill Edwards, producer. “This is a groundbreaking performance that everyone said couldn't be done live, but Cheap Trick has perfected it.”
In contrast to other shows in Las Vegas, tickets will be priced affordably, starting at $65. Previous performances of “Sgt. Pepper Live” featuring Cheap Trick drew tens of thousands of fans for sold-out performances in Los Angeles, selling more than 53,000 tickets.

Emerick will continue to be in charge of the audio production for “Sgt. Pepper Live.” He received Grammy Awards for the engineering of Sgt. Pepper Lonely Hearts Club Band and Abbey Road. The special engagement will be performed in the legendary Hilton Theater, home to Elvis Presley (who entertained for 837 consecutive performances) and superstar Barry Manilow.

I was one of the first Cheap Trick fans way back in the day, and I think Heaven Tonight and Live at Budokan are fantastic, essential rock albums. And I always loved Beatles and Sgt. Pepper, and every single Beatles release.
But this particular event at first glance doesn't appeal to me.
