Cheap Trick are heading to Australia in 2024 and in addition to playing at Red Hot Summer Tour, the band will be LIVE at Canberra Theatre Centre on Thursday, 7th March, joined by signature Australian rockers The Angels.

With over 5,000 performances spanning four decades and 20 million records sold worldwide, Rock and Roll Hall of Famers CHEAP TRICK are undoubtedly one of the most influential classic rock groups of the past 50 years. Celebrating their 50th anniversary next year, the band was formed in 1974 by guitarists Rick Nielsen, bassist Tom Petersson, and drummer Bun. E Carlos. One year later, Robin Zander joined the group. The current lineup consists of Nielsen, Petersson and Zander. Daxx Nielsen, son of Rick Nielsen, is now the band's current drummer and Robin Taylor Zander, son of Robin Zander, joins as a member when the band tours. While it has evolved throughout the years, CHEAP TRICK has continued to reach mainstream and critical success. Hits such as ‘The Flame’, ‘Dream Police’, ‘I Want You To Want Me’ and ‘Surrender’ have cemented the group as one of America’s top rock ‘n’ roll bands of all time. They released their 20th studio album, In Another World, in April 2021. Crowd favourites, The Angels, will see former drummer Nick Norton taking centre stage. With a set-list of catalogue classics that are ingrained in the hearts of every Australian rock fan, it is no wonder that the famous American critic David Fricke called The Angels “a guaranteed great time anywhere”. As Ian McFarlane, the author of The Encyclopedia of Australian Rock and Pop, noted: “The Angels helped re-define the Australian rock tradition.” And now John Brewster, Rick Brewster, Sam Brewster, Tom Brewster and Nick Norton are giving it another twist. Let the night roll on!
