Cheap Trick Announce 2014 Tour Dates
During their 40 years as a band, Cheap Trick have been on the road more than they have been at home. And 2014 looks to be shaping up in much the same way.
The band has announced a batch of tour dates for the first part of the new year. Earlier this year, guitarist Rick Nielsen told Time, "We play as much as we can. If we waited for a hit record to tour, we would never have toured. No record? We go on tour. New record? On tour. Hit record? Flop record? Always tour."
While there's been some talk of a new record, Cheap Trick are currently in the middle of a lawsuit with former drummer Bun E. Carlos, who sued his onetime bandmates earlier this year, claiming he was forced out of the group. In September, the band fired back and counter-sued to have Carlos "removed as a corporate director" of the inner workings of the band.
Still, this tangled legal mess won't keep the band from doing what it does best: delivering total rock action on concert stages. Below you'll find dates for Cheap Trick's winter tour. More shows will most likely be announced before these are over.
