Cheap Trick is an indisputable American institution, beloved around the globe since 1974 for their instantly identifiable and hugely influential brand of pop rock and roll. The band — Robin Zander (vocals, rhythm guitar), Rick Nielsen (lead guitar), Tom Petersson (bass guitar) and Daxx Nielsen (drums) — pioneered the landscape of power-pop with an unparalleled streak of classic tunes, including “He's A Whore,” “California Man,” “Dream Police,” “Surrender” and "I Want You To Want Me.” Cheap Trick’s 1977 self-titled debut album helped define their sound, but it was “In Color” (1977) that solidified their status as one of rock music’s most promising acts. In 2012, the record was ranked No. 443 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
In 1978, Cheap Trick released the seminal album "Heaven Tonight," which included their signature song "Surrender" and showcased their ability to craft anthemic hooks and harmonies. The band's live album, "Cheap Trick at Budokan” (1979), catapulted them to international fame, thanks to the success of the live version of "I Want You to Want Me" and their electrifying stage presence. Throughout their career, Cheap Trick has released numerous hit singles, including “Dream Police,” “If You Want My Love” and “The Flame,” which became their first No. 1 hit single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1988.
As they entered the new millennium, Cheap Trick remained a force to be reckoned with. Their ability to consistently deliver memorable music earned them a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2016, honoring their impressive body of work and cementing their legacy. In 2017, Cheap Trick released “We’re All Right!” and “Christmas Christmas,” with the former album’s first single, “Long Time Coming,” enjoying an unprecedented run of 14 weeks at No. 1 on the Mediabase Classic Rock chart. In May 2018, the band released their single, “The Summer Looks Good On You.” The song provided a glimpse into the band’s 20th studio album, “In Another World,” which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Rock Chart upon its release in 2021 — the highest first-week chart placement in their long, remarkable career. With their timeless hits and unwavering commitment to their craft, Cheap Trick continues to be an unstoppable rock and roll powerhouse. Doors open at 7 p.m.
