Cheap Trick To Perform at Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach Cheap Trick, one of the most popular bands of all time and currently celebrating their 35th year together, will headline the Tecate Light Rock-N-Roar Concert Presented by KLOS, part of the weekend festivities at the 36th Annual Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, April 16-18.
The concert, held on the Convention Center outdoor stage, follows racing activities on Sat., April 17 and is free to race ticketholders.
Since the 1970s, Cheap Trick has been blending elements of pop, punk and even metal in an instantly-catchy and recognizable format. Their timeless classics, including such favorites as "I Want You to Want Me," "Dream Police," "Surrender," and the late-1980s favorite, "The Flame," have made Cheap Trick a musical institution.
The band has logged more than 5,000 performances, sold more than 20 million records, produced 29 movie soundtracks and has been awarded with 40 gold and platinum recording awards. In 2007, the band was honored by the Chicago Chapter of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (NARAS) for their long-time contributions to the music industry.
Their most recent release, "The Latest," has received glowing reviews, and continues Cheap Trick's reign as power-pop progenitors.
