Cheap Trick are set to team up with Rod Stewart for a North American tour this summer. According to Rolling Stone, the 21-date trek — which features Rod Stewart as the headliner and Cheap Trick as the “special guest” — will launch on 21 July in Cleveland, Ohio and end on 5 September in Chicago, Illinois. Tickets for most shows go on sale Friday, 10 January at 10 a.m. local time via Live Nation.
The Cheap Trick fan club sale will begin on Wednesday, 8 January at 10 a.m. local time via the band’s web site. A Citi card pre-sale will start at Tuesday, 7 January at 10 a.m. and run through Thursday, 9 January at 10 p.m. local time.
During 2018, Cheap Trick released a single called ‘The Summer Looks Good On You’ via Big Machine Records. The band co-produced the song with long-time collaborator Julian Raymond, who also worked on Cheap Trick’s last three albums, 2016’s Bang, Zoom, Crazy… Hello and 2017’s We’re All Alright! and Christmas Christmas. Also in 2018, took part in the ‘Nothin’ But A Good Time Tour’ with Poison.
The Illinois band has released nearly 20 studio records, including three in the past four years. A career highpoint for the quartet was its 2016 induction into the Rock And Roll Of Fame, where it accepted its award before performing three of its hits — ‘I Want You to Want Me’, ‘Dream Police’ and ‘Surrender’.
