Sgt Pepper Gets Cheap Tribute
The event is set to take place at the Hollywood Bowl on August 10th and 11th to mark the 40th anniversary of the landmark album. Cheap Trick will be making a "special appearance" at the venue and will joined by Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, Aimee Mann, Joan Osborne and other unannounced special guests. Will Beatle Paul show up?
Cheap Trick will also reportedly go beyond Pepper and include some additional covers of their favorite Beatles songs like "Magical Mystery Tour," "Norwegian Wood" and "Eleanor Rigby." While we're talking about honors it might be well to mention that the Illinois legislature is considering naming April 1st Cheap Trick day. That is not an April Fools joke. And it won't be a one off event, the bill calls for April 1st to forever be Cheap Trick day. The bill was referred to committee back in June so we'll see if they get off their legislative asses in time for next year.
