The band will be playing at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on 10 & 11 August, though are not performing a Cheap Trick show. They will be the "house band",and together with the Hollywood Bowl Orchesta and guest vocalists, they will be contributing to these two shows which celebrate the 40th anniversary of the release of The Beatles' legendary "Sergeant Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band" album.
The band played at the Chicago Auto Show on 8 February, and their 25 minute set was broadcast live by the local XRT radio station. In addition, the band played at Augusta GA on April 3rd at the annual "Rock Fore! Dough" benefit at the start of the famous Augusta Masters golf week. That show was interesting as Jon Brant stood in for Tom, who was unavailable. Pictures from the show can be found on pages 18-20 of the picture gallery at . They also played at Dolphin Stadium in Miami on April 21 following the Florida Marlins v Washington Nationals Major League Baseball game.
Video of Cheap Trick performing "If It Takes a Lifetime" (filmed at the opening of the Hard Rock Cafe, Narita Tokyo in October 2006) has reportedly been spotted playing at a HRC in Europe recently. So if you're dining in a Hard Rock Cafe, do keep an eye (and ear) out for that!
As ever, the official website is worth checking regularly, and not only for details of confirmed tour dates. Several sets of new photos can be found from recent shows and events, as well as some wonderful vintage pictures recently added. And the merchandise store continues to offer a wide range of Cheap Trick goodies.
