The band played at the "Sgt Pepper at 40" shows at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on 10 & 11 August,
though did not perform a Cheap Trick show. They were the"house band",and together with the Hollywood
Bowl Orchesta and several guest vocalists they contributed to the performing of several Beatles songs as well
as the whole of the "Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band" album live (which of course the Beatles had never
envisaged doing). For those who have already read my review online, you might like to go back to it as I've just
added a few new pictures of Rick's new guitar ("Uncle Pepper") taken at the early Sept show at Naperville IL.
In June 2006, a resolution was tabled at the Illinois State senate for for April 1st to be declared CT Day.

The summer has seen Sony release yet another Cheap Trick compilation CD in the USA, titled "Super Hits",
and featuring an unusual collection of 10 tunes. More interestingly, a double CD set was released in Europe on
September 3rd of "One on One" together with "Next Position Please". Although the latter features several bonus
tracks (originally on the cassette release, plus "All I Really Want" and "Twisted Heart"), it must be noted that this
is NOT the "Authorized Next Position Please" which is still only available to purchase by download in the USA.
As ever, the official website www.cheaptrick.com is worth checking regularly, and not only for details of
confirmed tour dates. Several sets of new photos can be found from some of the summer shows and events. In
addition, the merchandise store continues to offer a wide range of Cheap Trick goodies, including new t-shirt
designs, the last remaining limited edition t-shirts and numbered lithographs from the Hollywood Bowl, as well as
a current, time limited pre-order for a sterling silver dog tag (hurry on these limited edition offers!)
