Since the 70s Cheap Trick has blended elements of pop, punk and metal in a way that is instantly catchy and recognizable, with timeless classics including “I Want You to Want Me,” “Surrender,” and “The Flame.” Cited as an influence of genre defining artists ranging from Joey Ramone to Guns N’ Roses, Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins and Kurt Cobain to AC/DCs Angus Young, Cheap Trick have endured an over 35-year reign as power-pop progenitors. Their influence continues with their recent release, The Latest, garnering glowing reviews worldwide.
Ottawa-based “Swamp Blues” trio MonkeyJunk will appear as special guests. Their new album All Frequencies was released in late September and is the follow-up to their JUNO award-winning Blues Album of the Year, To Behold.
