A celebration of The Beatles' influential album, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, the show features a 32-piece orchestra, authentic Indian sitar ensemble and Cheap Trick performing the entire album live. In addition, audiences are treated to select Cheap Trick songs such as "I Want You To Want Me," "Dream Police," "Surrender," and others.
Since beginning their Las Vegas limited engagement Cheap Trick has performed to packed houses, including celebrities such as Siegfried Fischbacher, Bobby Vinton, Rachel Ray, Emeril Lagasse, the Board of Directors from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and many others. The band was recognized by the City of Las Vegas where Mayor Oscar B. Goodman welcomed the group by declaring June 11 "Sgt Pepper Live Day."
Geoff Emerick, the engineer of The Beatles' classic 1967 album and producer of other Beatles' recordings, supervises the audio production of the show. 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 music into the classic songs while paying tribute to music legends.
