Cheap Trick to pay tribute to The Beatles at Sgt. Pepper party.

CheapTrickCheapTrick97.jpgI have always been a closet Cheap Trick fan.  I must admit that I have their boxed set, and I do listen to it while I am cleaning my house.  It’s funny, I think the members of Cheap Trick would love nothing more than to be a Beatle tribute band.  And, no I don’t mean that in a bad way at all.  You can tell that they just simply love the Beatles.  It looks like the Dream Police themselves are the house band for quite the anniversary. 

It seems like a great choice. I mean, Lennon himself loved them. Right? Seems cool to me.  It sounds like fun.  I hope we get to see the 5-necked guitar too!

Here’s what we’ve read.

Rockers Cheap Trick have signed on to be the house band for a 40th anniversary celebration of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album.

The Surrender hitmakers will back a string of star vocalists who will perform tracks from the Sgt. Pepper’s album, as well as other Beatles favourites, at the Hollywood Bowl celebration in August.

Singers for the Sgt. Pepper’s At 40: A Beatles Celebration shows are yet to be announced.

    A celebration of The Beatles’ influential album, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the show is an energetic performance that features an orchestra and a captivating experience of light and sound as Cheap Trick perform the entire album live as well as select Cheap Trick songs that lend themselves to orchestral arrangements. At the helm of the production is Geoff Emerick, the renowned engineer of the classic 1967 album. 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 power pop into the classic songs while
    paying tribute to music legends in an unforgettable musical experience.

    Cheap Trick is best known for its classic singles, ‘I Want You To Want Me’ and ‘Surrender.’ The American power-pop progenitors recorded the album All Shook Up in 1980 with Sir George Martin and Geoff Emerick, producer and engineer of Sgt. Pepper¹s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Emerick will continue to oversee the audio production for ‘Sgt. Pepper Live.’ He received Grammy Awards for the engineering of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and Abbey Road.
