Cheap Trick to perform on Guitar Center Sessions

Cheap Trick will perform on Guitar Center Sessions on Directv's Audience network on January 17, 2014.

The band will join host Nic Harcourt for the appearance.

Cheap Trick have been making headlines recently for a series of legal disputes amongst its band members.

In July, original drummer Bun E. Carlos – who has not performed with the group since March of 2010 – filed a lawsuit over claims that the band have refused to compensate him based on existing agreements amongst the group.

Earlier this month, Cheap Trick members Rick Neilsen, Robin Zander and Tom Petersson filed a countersuit against Carlos saying he was ousted from the group when he stopped touring and that left him subject to removal as a corporate director of the band’s companies without a unanimous shareholder vote.

Guitarist Neilsen’s son, Daxx, has been handling drum duties for the group since Carlos retired from touring.
