Cheap Trick: Robin Zander’s Sgt. Pepper outfit added to Rock Hall

To kick off 2013, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, Ohio has unveiled dozens of new collection items – including handwritten lyrics, instruments, a tour van, clothing, stage props, and more – many on display to the public for the first time.

One of the highlights from the new collection is Cheap Trick vocalist and guitarist Robin Zander's Sgt. Pepper outfit, designed by Karen Dusenbery, and located in the Ahmet Ertegun Main Exhibit Hall, Lower Level

Cheap Trick released the album “Sgt. Pepper Live,” recorded with a full orchestra on August 25, 2009, commemorating the 42nd anniversary of the release of the Beatles’ “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”

Cheap Trick performed the Beatles album in a live stage show at the Las Vegas Hilton for two weeks in September 2009; Zander wore the outfit during the limited-run series.
