 Enjoy U.S. Hit-Makers Cheap Trick & U.K. Chart Toppers Squeeze Together for a Night of Classic Rock & Pop Favorites from Both Sides of the "Pond"! 

 

 

Cheap Trick may be one of the most covered bands of all time. 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," and the late 80s lighter-waving favorite, "The Flame," Cheap Trick is a musical institution.  Their most current release, "The Latest," (released on CD, vinyl and 8-track) has garnered glowing reviews worldwide and continues Cheap Trick's reign as power-pop progenitors as they celebrate their 35th anniversary together.  

In 1973, teenage friends Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook formed the band that earned them the nickname'The New Lennon and McCartney.' Over 35 years later, with their legacy intact, Chris Difford's lyrics and Glenn Tilbrook's music have survived everything from the ever-changing musical landscape to their own internal reshuffles and acrimonious breakups. As befits one of the UK's much-loved acts, there is no end of Squeeze fans currently wearing their influences firmly on their sleeve, whether it be Mark Ronson, Kasabian, Supergrass, Lily Allen, The Feeling or Razorlight. With their fingerprints keenly felt throughout the fabric of popular music, it is only right that these songs, with their evergreen and popular sound, continue to be played and enjoyed live.  Squeeze is still touring regularly and reminding fans worldwide just why they have left such an indelible impression on the UK's music scene.

Join us for an evening of classic rock hits including "Dream Police," "Surrender," "Tempted," "Black Coffee in Bed," and more with two legendary bands.  Presented by The Mann Center and AEG LivePresented by 102.9 WMGK.
