Cheap Trick kicked some butt on this past weekend’s airings on PBS of “Austin City Limits”. They rocked all the hits and sounded awesome. Robin Zander, Rick Nielsen and Tom Petersson and their sideband put on a great show, but we miss Bun E. Carlos.
Cheap Trick will soon be staging multi-date shows featuring songs from the platinum record, “Dream Police”. The Rhythmic Noise Philharmonic Orchestra & Mind Choir will perform alongside these and other hits from Cheap Trick’s extensive catalog. The run kicks off January 20th, 2011 and includes 12 dates through February 26th. The shows take place at Milwaukee’s recently renovated Northern Lights Theater at Potawatomi Bingo Casino, less than two hours away from Chicago. Retaining its intimate, up-close-and-personal atmosphere, the 500-seat theater ensures that there is not a bad seat in the house.
