Cheap Trick wants you to want to hear the Beatles.
Las Vegas Hilton officials say the 80s rock group best known for “I Want You to Want Me” will band with an orchestra to perform the one of the Beatles’ most popular albums during a special run in Las Vegas.
Hotel spokesman Ira Sternberg says Geoff Emerick, the producer of “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” will be on hand for nine shows performed live — start to finish — in September at the Las Vegas Hilton Theater.
The Hilton shows, “Sgt. Pepper Live” featuring Cheap Trick, are being produced by Bill Edwards Presents Inc.
Sternberg says tickets to the Sept. 13-15, 17-19 and 21-23 shows will start at $65.
