Cheap Trick are planning a pair of shows to celebrate the 35th anniversary of their concerts in Tokyo that spawned the classic live album "At Budokan."
The rockers will replicate history, playing the same songs in the same order they did in 1978. They'll start on April 28 at the John Varvatos boutique on the Bowery in New York (the former home of CBGB), where they'll re-create the show they performed on the same day in 1978. They'll follow up on April 30 at El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles by playing the same set from 35 years ago.
Fans will be able to watch the shows through live streams. The April 28 New
York show will be broadcast on Livestream.com, while the April 30 Los Angeles
show will air on AXS TV. For more information, visit the band's website.
Cheap Trick also marked the 20th anniversary of their Budokan shows in 1998 with a string of concerts.
Cheap Trick rocks! I saw Rick Neilsen play a custom 5 neck guitar that weighed 70 pounds,
I was in the 8th row and got a couple guitar picks that he threw, Pretty cool that the guitar picks have a slightly worn spot from where he used them to play, I keep them right next to my Fender Strat.
awesome. i've seen cheap trick every year since 78. love their new albums! but the classics are still
the best. i would go but i'll be seeing them two times in may. a true american rock band! they don't get
the respect that they deserve. great songwriters and musicians and always put on a great show.
