Cheap Trick to perform at #CMWorld 2016!

March 16, 2016 Cathy McPhillips

Fresh off the 2016 Rock Hall Inductions, Cheap Trick will be performing live at Content Marketing World 2016! On September 7, 2016 at 9pm (with doors opening at 8pm), at the Music Hall, where our concert was last year. Same great place, more epic music and great fun!

Since the 70s, they’ve been blending elements of pop, punk and even metal in a way that is instantly catchy and recognizable. With timeless classics such as “I Want You to Want Me,” “Surrender” (my favorite!) and “The Flame,” the band is a musical institution.

Anyone familiar with Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report will note that Cheap Trick wrote and performed the theme song.

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. They were also featured in the John Varvatos Spring 2008 ad campaign.

The band has most recently performed their Dream Police album in its entirety along with an orchestra in select cities across the US. This innovative show also includes many other songs from the band’s extensive catalog, garnering them critical acclaim after performances in venues such as the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.

Their most current release from 2009, The Latest, garnered glowing reviews worldwide and continues Cheap Trick’s reign as power-pop progenitors as they continue their legacy of over 35 years in the music industry.
