Rock and Roll Hall of Famers CHEAP TRICK (supported by DALLAS CRANE) will play East Coast headline dates this October.
One of the most influential rock groups of the past fifty years, and propelled by genre-defying global smash hits like ‘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.
The band will be supported by lauded Australian rock outfit, DALLAS CRANE, who are renowned for their wildly energetic performances and gripping stage presence. You Am I’s Tim Rogers famously acknowledged them as his favourite live band, immortalising them in the song,‘Who Put The Devil In You?’. The veteran rockers are no strangers to the world’s biggest stages, having played alongside the likes of The Who, Cold Chisel, Midnight Oil and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds to name a few.
“Cheap Trick live is uniformly tight, as blistering and raw as it is cunningly melodic” – Rolling Stone
“a very tasty smorgasbord of thick electric-guitar licks with a definite garage-rockabilly vibe and just enough hair-metal in the mix to keep the whole thing appealingly gnarly.” – Business Insider
