The cast of BeatleShow! at Saxe Theater is celebrating the release of what is arguably the greatest album of all time, “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” with a special offer for locals: $15 tickets to the show for the entire month of June.

Sgt. Pepper was released on June 1, 1967, and features some of the most popular songs in history, including “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” and “A Day in the Life.” The album spent 27 weeks at the top of the UK Album Chart and 15 weeks at number one on the US Billboard 200. Forty-five years later, music from The Beatles’ eighth studio album continues to be embraced by several generations of fans. “At the time of its release, there was nothing else like Sgt. Pepper,” said Mick McCoy, producer of BeatleShow!. “It was literally a landmark cultural event that changed not only pop music, but pop culture as well.”

BeatleShow! takes the stage at Saxe Theater inside Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Entertainment critics say the show is as close as you can get to a real Beatles’ concert. This amazing cast plays and sings the greatest hits of all time… LIVE! Cast members are some of the most highly-regarded musicians in the industry, performing hits from the time The Beatles came to America in the early ‘60s, to the psychedelic era – songs like “Magical Mystery Tour,” “Here Comes the Sun,” and “Yellow Submarine,” followed by hits from the albums Let It Be, and Abbey Road.


To take advantage of this special offer, locals simply need to present their Nevada I.D.s at the Saxe Theater box office June 1st through June 30th. The $15 ticket offer does not include taxes and fees and may not be applied to prior purchase. Seating is limited and management reserves all rights.
