Power-pop pioneers Cheap Trick have been rockin' together on and off since 1974, making their name on the strength of 1978 live album At Budokan, and bouncing back after an ’80s slump to be recognized as essential hard-rock forebears, thanks to the patronage of Nirvana, Steve Albini and Pearl Jam. Tonight you get to see lead singer Robin Zander do his solo thing. Given that he's only released two solo albums, the second of which was a country-rock disc that was withdrawn hours after its release last year, we're willing to bet you'll hear a good helping of Cheap Trick hits tonight. Zander will be joined by members of John Entwistle Band, and Randy Jackson of Zebra opens the show.
