More than thirty years after the release of the internationally acclaimed album Dream Police, Cheap Trick is staging a multi-date show featuring songs from the platinum record. The Bombastic Symphonic Philharmonic with The Rhythmic Noise Mind Choir in 4D will perform alongside these and other hits from Cheap Trick's extensive catalog.
For Dream Police, the band teamed up with sought after production designer, Butch Allen (Paul McCartney, Metallica, No Doubt), and comic daredevil/producer, Bello Nock. World-class video and film director and longtime Cheap Trick collaborator Jim Yukich also contributed.
"Dream Police was the first record where we felt the songs were well-suited for orchestration; that was a very expansive time for us musically," says bassist Tom Peterson.
Cheap Trick formed in the city of Rockford, IL in 1974. The multi-platinum band has sold over 20 million albums and had numerous hits including "Surrender," "I Want You to Want Me" and "The Flame."
