Cheap Trick To Celebrate Anniversary of ‘Budokan’ With Streaming, Broadcast Concerts

Worn out your vinyl copy of Cheap Trick’s legendary 1978 ‘At Budokan?’ Here’s a chance to make new memories, as the band presents the same exact set twice in celebration of the concert’s 35th anniversary.

Tune into on April 28 — three and a half decades after the original show, to the day — as they recreate classic moments in song like ‘Surrender’ and ‘I Want You To Want Me‘ during a private set at John Varvatos Bowery boutique, housed in the former New York City locale of the seminal underground music club CBGB’s. is offering 50 VIP ticket bundles to this private show, beginning at noon on April 4, that include tickets to the private show, a meet-and-greet, a signed commemorative poster, the Cheap Trick ‘Complete Epic Albums’ CD box set, plus the ‘Budokan!’ box set.

If you’re not one of those lucky 50, never fear. Cheap Trick will perform the Budokan set again on April 30 at the El Rey in Los Angeles, and that show will air live nationally on AXS TV, as well.

The triple-platinum ‘At Budokan’ helped catapult Cheap Trick to stardom, reaching No. 4 and eventually being named one of Rolling Stone magazine’s Top 500 albums of all time. The band will follow up this ‘Budokan’ celebration with a series of summer dates, appearing with Pat Benatar.
