Cheap Trick to play O’Reilly Family Event Center on October 22

SPRINGFIELD, Mo., August 18, 2016 — Fresh off of its induction into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in April, iconic hard rock and power pop group Cheap Trick will perform at the O’Reilly Family Event Center on Saturday, October 22. Local band Paralandra will open the show.

Tickets start at $41.50 and go on sale starting at 10 a.m., Friday, August 26 at or by calling (417) 873-6389. Tickets may also be purchased in person at the OFEC box office, which is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to noon on Saturdays.

Cheap Trick is part of the very fiber of American music, inspiring and delighting generations with a unique union of massive melodies and razorblade riffs. Frontlined since 1974 by Robin Zander (vocals, rhythm guitar), Rick Nielsen (lead guitar), and Tom Petersson (bass guitar), the band is set to impact still another era with the new album “Bang Zoom Crazy… Hello,” its 17th studio collection and first in more than five years.

The Rockford, Illinois-born band is among the most active and successful in music history, with featured appearances on over 20 movie soundtracks, more than 40 international gold and platinum certifications, myriad awards and industry honors, and total record sales well in excess of 20 million. Fan bases in the U.S., Europe, Japan and elsewhere have helped propel songs such as “Surrender,” “I Want You to Want Me,” “Dream Police” and “The Flame” to the top of the charts over the decades.
