Cheap Trick are an indisputable American institution, beloved around the globe since 1974 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.” After a year of show cancellations due to the pandemic, Cheap Trick began touring once again with the same lineup of the last several years which includes Robin Taylor Zander on rhythm guitar and vocals.
In May 2018, the band released their single, “The Summer Looks Good On You.” The Rock & Roll Hall of Famers co-produced the electrifying rocker alongside their longtime collaborator, GRAMMY® Award winner Julian Raymond (Glen Campbell, Fastball). The song was the first glimpse at the band’s 20th studio album, IN ANOTHER WORLD, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Rock Chart upon its release in spring 2021, their highest first week chart placement in their long, remarkable career. The record also bowed at #1 on the “Record Label Independent Current Albums” chart, #5 “Current Digital,” #6 “Top Current,” #6 “Internet,” #7 Top Albums,” and #10 “Digital.” To add to the excitement, the album’s single, “Light Up The Fire,” peaked at #1 at Classic Rock Radio both Mediabase and BDS.
“Since their first album in 1977, Cheap Trick has consistently put out perfectly polished power-pop and hard rock gems, and that tradition continues on In Another World…All we can do is be thankful for the longevity and endless creativity of the quartet from Rockford, Illinois.” – Associated Press Presented by True Endeavors – www.trueendeavors.com
