Book Cheap Trick
Since first blowing out of Rockford, Illinois, Cheap Trick has never stopped adding to its achievements. They can point to four platinum albums (“Cheap Trick at Budokan” reached triple platinum) and three gold LPs, a number-one single (“The Flame”), seven other Top 40 hits and a video compilation entitled “Every Trick in the Book”.
In 1999, Cheap Trick celebrated their 25th anniversary…in style. Holding court for 15,000 rabid Cheap Trick fans at Rockford’s Davis Park, the three-hour bash found the band performing “every Trick in the book” – a song from every Cheap Trick album!
A number of special guests were on-tap to join in the fun – Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins), Slash (Guns N Roses), Art Alexakis (Everclear) and many others. The resulting two-CD set, titled “Silver,” was released to overwhelming critical praise on February 27, 2001. The band also recorded a studio album, released in 2003 as Special One. It was followed in 2006 by Rockford. So what’s next? Only time will tell. One thing is certain – more great chords from four great guys.
