Cheap Trick

Cheap Trick was amazing... the band barely let up; if there was a second or a pause they ripped into another song, played The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour as if they owned it. "She's Tight" which brought back images of the video from thirty years ago. "The Dream Police" which I would say is my favorite, and "I Want You to Want Me". Rickie Nilsson kept flipping guitar picks out into the audience and like a kid I wanted to get one. -[Train Writer]
Cheap Trick played The Paramount in Huntington, Long Island on December 8th, with support from Mickey Leigh's New Yorkestra (Mickey Leigh is Joey Ramone's brother). The band has two more dates set on their calendar before the clock strikes 2012, on December 28th at Buckhead Theater in Atlanta and on New Year's Eve in St. Petersburg, FL at Jannus Landing.

So far, no plans to have Cheap Trick perform at the, um Cheap Trick. As BV Chicago posted last month...

Cheap Trick, the Rockford band behind the '70s hits "Dream Police" and "I Want You to Want Me," announced that it will "curate" a museum and music venue in a former Buick dealership at 2245 S. Michigan in the emerging Record Row-Motor Row district.

Band manager David Frey said in a statement that Cheap Trick Chicago will be "a one-of-a-kind eatery, unique musical instrument museum, radio station, and performance space as well as rooftop and outdoor and event space in the future Music Row in Chicago."

...The announcement is a continuation of Fioretti's vision to link the historic Chess Records site, 2120 S. Michigan; the empty Vee-Jay and Brunswick Records site, 1449 S. Michigan, and vacant auto dealerships into an entertainment district that would blend history, recording studios, hotels and restaurants.

"I think we could put the Cheap Trick project together by next year," Fioretti said Wednesday. -[Chicago Sun Times]

I wonder if Rick Neilson wears checkered depends® undergarments

There is not a single ugly guitar in that picture. The 12-string bass is insane. And technically there are no Les Pauls, only Hamers.

"And technically there are no Les Pauls, only Hamers."

I am blind, Rick does have a Gibson. Doh!

Anyone remember the Paramount in NYC? I wonder how long that name was used (in between the Felt Forum and The Theater at MSG).

Cheap Trick is not for douche bag Hipsters...nor do hipsters deserve to watch one of their shows. Let's face it, a hipster is just an Emo kid all grown up.

Cheap Trick is for people with no taste and nothing better to do.

Cheap Trick is one of the worst bands of all time. I wish that they would go on tour with Styx and Journey, and that their plane would crash into the new World Trade Center. What a bunch of old fags...

Those guys are a crap load of fun. Miss the days of fun rock bands like CT, Queen, and Van Halen.

I had the pleasure of seeing Mickey Leigh and the New Yorkestra's sound check at Coney Island this pass August. They were on the bill with Cheap Trick. Their sound check was amazing but the rain prevented them from playing. Cheap Trick came on late in the evening but was rained out after 4 or 5 songs. At that point us poor slobs in the audience were soaked to our underwear! Both bands were amazing. I decided to come up over to the Paramount to see the two bands play. Not a easy task since I'm a Brooklyn boy. The trip was well worth it. Both bands were amazing! I love the New Yorkestra song "With Our Blood" and I've been a Cheap Trick fan since the good old days. I hope to see more from the New Yorkestra and Cheap Trick together in the future!
