We are life long Cheap Trick fans here at Australian Rock Review and are reminding all readers that one of the most influential rock groups of the past fifty years hit Australia next month. With hits including ‘I Want You To Want Me’, ‘Dream Police’, ‘Surrender’, ‘The Flame’ and more, Cheap Trick has sold in excess of 20 million records worldwide.
Since exploding onto the music scene in the mid-1970’s they’ve been blending elements of pop, punk and even metal to create soundscapes that are immediately recognisable. Consistent touring over the past five decades – notching up more than 5,000 shows, appearances on 29 movie soundtracks plus 40 gold and platinum recording awards has seen them become one of the top and most prolific rock bands of all time.
Fronted by the dynamic Robin Zander, and comprising founding bassist Tom Petersson, famed for his 12-string bass, with Rick Nielsen on guitar and his son Daxx Nielsen on drums, Cheap Trick are a vibrant on-stage force like no other.
