Cheap Trick's high-octane treatment of The Beatles' classic "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" is returning to Las Vegas this summer, but is moving from the Las Vegas Hilton — where it was performed to warm reception in September — to Paris Las Vegas. Show dates are weekends in June and July, Specifically: June 11-12, June 15-16, June 18-19, June 22-23, June 25-26, June 29-30, July 20-21, July 23-24, July 27-28, and July 30-31. Show times are 8 p.m. The dates are slotted during weekends that the theater's regular headliner, Barry Manilow, is off.
In a news release issued this morning, tickets for "Sgt. Pepper Live" at Paris Las Vegas Theatre are on sale now and priced at $75, $100, $125 and $250. Go to the Paris website or Ticketmaster for ticket information. Unlike the Hilton production, the Paris Las Vegas version of the show will not feature guest artists Joan Osborne, Ian Ball and Rob Laufer. Also, the band plans to stray from an all-Beatles showcase to include a few Cheap Trick hits. But as previously at the Hilton a full orchestra will back Cheap Trick as it Performs "Sgt. Pepper," and famed Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick will again supervise the audio production for the show.
