Classic Rock Revisited: CHEAP TRICK to play Tropicana Showroom May 7, 2011

March 28, 2011 - by CG News Desk

CHEAP TRICK may be one of the most covered bands of all time. On Saturday, May 7, 2011, CHEAP TRICK will thrill fans with songs old and new live on stage at Tropicana Casino & Resort. 

Since the 70s CHEAP TRICK has 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," and the late 80s lighter-waving favorite, "The Flame," CHEAP TRICK are 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 the 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 CHEAP TRICK'S reign as power-pop progenitors as they celebrate their 35th anniversary together.

CHEAP TRICK'S live performance will begin at 9 p.m. on Saturday, May 7, 2011. Tickets are $60, $50 and $45 and go on sale March 26. Tickets can be purchased at the Tropicana Box Office or through Ticketmaster at or by phone at 1-800-745-3000.
