ROCK | Cheap Trick


I have to admit I'm a little skeptical: Cheap Trick without drummer Bun E. Carlos? I dunno, man. For four decades now, this Rockford, Illinois, quartet has brought bar band excitement to arena audiences. With its first three albums (starting with one of my all-time faves, the 1977 eponymous "Cheap Trick") not making that much of a dent, the band went to Japan where the resulting album, "Cheap Trick at Budokan," launched the band into the stratosphere. This band is the ultimate pop rock machine and tons of sing along fun live. Still, there's this thing with the drummer. We'll see...

Cheap Trick plays with Peter Frampton on Saturday, July 11, at CMAC, 3355 Marvin Sands Drive, Canandaigua. 7:30 p.m. $20-$55.;
