Cheap Trick performs Sgt. Pepper at Paris

June and July, 2010. Starting a new thread for this show. I watched the DVD of their performance of this at the LV Hilton last time. Great show for rock fans. Ticket prices are a little steep - wondering if discounts will be available.

A couple of things - Bun E. is not playing with the band right now but there will be a symphony orchestra.

That is so not fair. We just got back from Vegas, and the soonest we will be back is November (and in reality it won't be til next February). I would SO love to see this. My DH would hate it, but that is totally not the point.

We saw the show last night (Friday, June 11th). We got tickets at Tix4Tonight which took off about 25%. We didn't get choice of seat and it was *best available* which is ok because the venue is small and even tho we were on the side, we could see perfectly.

The show is at Paris which is a bit run down compared to the other casinos on the strip. The performance is very well done. Cheap Trick is obviously very talented. The songs from Sgt Pepper are good and Cheap Trick also sings their own hit. There is an orchestra and great back up vocals above the stage. Amazing set up

ok, so you would think this would be a great experience? Then why did I walk out after 5-6 songs? OMG, it was so horribly loud, you could not hear the singing! The amps were cranked up as if they were outside at an arena. This Paris venue is SMALL. The loudness ruined the show and you could tell he has an amazing voice but it is drowned out.

I had to wait in the lobby due to my husband trying to stick it out for a few more songs - and I could it hear it just fine despite being behind heavy closed doors. We were so disappointed. I am sure when they performed (outdoors) at Hollywood Bowl, it was way better!

And believe me, I NEVER walk out of anything that I have paid for and I was very upset I had to leave.

thanks for posting your review. Friday was the first show of the run. I was in vegas this past weekend too and was going to the Sat show but decided to go see Love at the Mirage instead ('free ticket'). I'm glad I did after reading your post. Hopefully they will get the sound ironed out so I can see them when I go back in July.

We have tickets to see it on June 26. Hope they have the sound fixed by then. My husband picked this one, and I think the prices are steep, but I hope it's good.

They were just interviewed this morning on "Breakfast with the Beatles"...made the show sound Fab (sorry :)

Hey, OT, but I'm going to see the REAL Ringo in August! Way pumped! He's touring all over this summer, maybe near some of you :)

I just saw the showl last night. Incredible. We were in about the 10th row. Sounded great, not too loud. Being a Beatles and Cheap Trick fan, I knew all of the songs. If you sit in the first few rows you have a chance of catching a guitar pick.

Our vacation is at the end of September and we are hoping they extend their run until then. We have seen most of the shows we had an interest in seeing over the last 10 years and this one looks very interesting. Not to mention almost all of the reviews have been positive. I also found a good deal for the cheaper seats at Travelzoo for anyone visiting in the next few weeks.

Saw the show on June 26 and loved it. My husband has been playing the dvd since we got back. We caught 8 guitar picks between us. Zander looked awesome and sounded better.
