LAS VEGAS , June 12 (UPI) -- The Las Vegas Hilton has announced plans to present the music show "Sgt. Pepper Live," featuring Cheap Trick, this September.

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.
