Performances of the Bill Edwards Presents Inc. production featuring Cheap Trick playing songs from the iconic Beatles album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" are scheduled for Sept. 13-15, 17-19 and 21-23. The shows, with special musical guests to be announced, will feature a full symphony orchestra, audio production by Geoff Emerick and set design by Rene Lagler, the Hilton said in a news release.
"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," Ken Ciancimino, executive vice president of the Las Vegas Hilton, said in a statement.
"We are going to make rock 'n' roll history by incorporating this legendary American rock group with the music of the Beatles," added producer Bill Edwards. "This is a groundbreaking performance that everyone said couldn't be done live, but Cheap Trick has perfected it."
Tickets will be priced starting at $65, the Hilton said, adding previous performances of "Sgt. Pepper Live" featuring Cheap Trick drew tens of thousands of fans for sold-out performances in Los Angeles.
