Cheap Trick to perform Budokan album live in NYC

To celebrate the 35th anniversary of the legendary show in Budokan, Japan, Cheap Trick are excited to announce that they will play the exact April 28th, 1978 Budokan set on April 28th at the John Varvatos Bowery boutique in New York City.

As the space that formerly housed the seminal underground music club CBGB’s, the Varvatos store seemed the perfect place to celebrate this historic moment. Cheap Trick began its relationship with Varvatos in Spring 2008 when they starred in the seasonal brand campaign photographed by Danny Clinch.

“I’m proud to host this momentous show for my friends Cheap Trick at my Bowery store which is celebrating its own 5th anniversary this month,” says Varvatos.

Fans around the world will be able to watch the show live via here.

Bolstered by the hit singles, “I Want You To Want Me,” and “Ain’t That A Shame,” 1978’s “Cheap Trick at Budokan” is the album that catapulted the Rockford, IL, quartet to superstardom. The album rocketed all the way to #4 on the Billboard Top 200 and went triple platinum, and Rolling Stone has since called it one of the top 500 albums of all time.
