Cheap Trick is widely considered one of the most covered bands of all time after creating a substantial fan base through its own brand of power pop music with hard-edged, melodic undertones in the 1970s. With timeless classics such as “I Want You to Want Me,” “Surrender,” and the late 80s favorite, “The Flame,” Cheap Trick has established itself as a musical institution.
With more than 5,000 performances, 20 million records sold, 29 movie soundtracks and 40 gold and platinum recording awards, the band was honored in October 2007 by the Chicago Chapter of NARAS (National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences) for their contributions to the music industry.
Their most current release, The Latest, has garnered glowing reviews worldwide and continues the group’s reign as power-pop progenitors as they celebrate their 35th anniversary together.
