With a potent blend of blues, new-wave, hard rock chops and punk, Cheap Trick gained a legion of fans and solidified its place in rock & roll history. Robin Zander’s rich and powerful voice, Rick Nielsen’s blazing lead guitar and Tom Petersson’s anchoring bass generated 20 million records sold, 29 movie soundtracks and 40 gold and platinum recording awards. “At Budokan” is ranked by Rolling Stone as one of the top 500 albums of all time. On the strength of its timeless classics such as “I Want You to Want Me,” “Surrender” and “The Flame,” Cheap Trick remains a formidable live band not to be missed.
