Poison, Cheap Trick

Past Event
Even without original drummer Bun E. Carlos, Cheap Trick are still fairly thrilling these days. Singer Robin Zander’s soaring vocals are as powerful as ever, and the hard-rocking quartet continue to put out good-to-great albums, such as last year’s We’re All Alright!, in an era when most of their classic-rock peers are content to coast on ancient glories. Nicking the opening riff of Pete Townshend’s “I Can’t Explain,” Cheap Trick add just enough of their own style to make the recent single “Long Time Coming” feel like a viable variation. Today the Rockford, Illinois, group release their latest single, “The Summer Looks Good on You.” Headliners Poison are a band very much stuck in the past — their most recent album, 2007’s Poison’d!, was an unremarkable collection of watered-down and kind of obvious classic-rock remakes.
