In addition, Cheap Trick have set a number of U.S. festival performances as well as a European tour slated to get underway June 23 with a much anticipated set at Spain’s Azkena Rock Festival. The trek will be highlighted by a trio of U.K. headline shows – the band’s first in six years – set for London’s O2 Kentish Town Forum (June 27), Manchester’s Academy (June 28), and Bristol’s O2 Academy (June 29).

BANG ZOOM CRAZY…HELLO made a spectacular chart entry following its release on April 1, 2016 – officially designated “Cheap Trick Day” in their beloved hometown of Rockford, IL. The collection arrived at No. 3 on Billboard’s “Top Rock Albums” chart while also entering the overall SoundScan/Billboard 200 at No. 30. “When I Wake Up Tomorrow,” the album’s powerful first single/video, also proved a multi-format smash, spending more than 15 consecutive days at the top of the Classic Rock airplay chart. As if that weren’t enough, Cheap Trick ruled the Classic Rock chart in the weeks preceding BANG ZOOM CRAZY…HELLO with a stunning 11 tracks in the format’s top 15, including material recorded at a special iHeartRadio ICONS concert in New York City.
