RAGBRAI Coralville organizers are excited to announce that Cheap Trick presented by Two Rivers Bank and Trust is scheduled to perform at the RAGBRAI overnight celebration in the Iowa River Landing in Coralville on July 24, 2015.
Cheap Trick may be one of the most covered bands of all time. Since the 70s they’ve been blending elements of pop, punk and even metal in a way that is instantly catchy and recognizable. With timeless classics such as “I Want You to Want Me,” “Surrender,” and “The Flame,” Cheap Trick are a musical institution. Anyone familiar with Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report will note that Cheap Trick wrote and performed the theme song.
With more than 5,000 performances, 20 million records sold, 29 movie soundtracks and 40 gold and platinum recording awards, the band was honored in October 2007 by the Chicago Chapter of NARAS (National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences) for their contributions to the music industry. Cheap Trick were featured in the John Varvatos Spring 2008 ad campaign.
Their most current release, The Latest, (released on CD, vinyl and 8-track) has garnered glowing reviews worldwide and continues Cheap Trick’s reign as power-pop progenitors as they continue their legacy of over 35 years in the music industry.
Tickets for the concert will be $10 for the general public and anyone wearing the official RAGBRAI wristband can enter for free. More ticket information will be available early April.
