Cheap Trick is part of the very fiber of American music, inspiring and delighting generations with their unique union of massive melodies and razorblade riffs, their own special brand of mischievous wit and maximum rock ‘n’ roll. Frontlined since 1974 by Robin Zander (vocals, rhythm guitar), Rick Nielsen (lead guitar), and Tom Petersson (bass guitar), the Rockford, IL-born Rock and Roll Hall of Famers are as vital today as ever, having released three spectacular records in the last three years — BANG ZOOM CRAZY…HELLO (2016), WE’RE ALL ALRIGHT! (2017) and CHRISTMAS CHRISTMAS (2017) – and toured relentlessly to packed audiences around the world (four decades/5,000+ shows).
Cheap Trick are an indisputable American institution, beloved for their instantly identifiable, hugely influential, brand of pop rock ‘n’ roll. The band – Robin Zander (vocals, rhythm guitar), Rick Nielsen (lead guitar), Tom Petersson (bass guitar), and Daxx Nielsen (drums) – are true pioneers with an unparalleled streak of certifiably classic tunes, from “He’s A Whore,” “California Man” and “Dream Police” to “Surrender” and “I Want You To Want Me.”
